I've read that the Aironet 1100 isn't supposed to be a DHCP server. However, I have two laptops with wireless capability and when I turn them on they connect wirelessly and get an IP address in the 169.254.147.x series with no default gateway.
Our network has a DHCP server configured to give out addresses in the 166.x.x.x range. When I connect the laptops to the network by wire, they get the correct addresses. And I know they aren't connecting to some rogue wireless access point somewhere because the web-based config for the Aironet shows them with the 169 addresses.
What's going on? How is the 1100 assigning these weird addresses, and how do I turn that off to make the laptops get their addresses from the legitimate DHCP server?
