APs fallback to DHCP

Hi,

all our APs are with static IPs. Now and then APs fallback to DHCP mode and I can't figure out why. Can I disable the IP fallback feature?

Regards,

Petri

Re: APs fallback to DHCP

no this can't be disabled. This feature is in place to keep the wireless network up and running. If an AP can't communicate with the static address that it has, it falls back to using DHCP to try and communicate.

IMHO, you are better served with having the AP be dhcp vs. static, as the AP is managed via the WLC instead of individually
