Dynamic IP addresses

I have one Access Point 340 connected to my Cisco 3550 Switch

and I have another Cisco Work Group bridge connected to another switch

with 4 clients on it.

I can communicate with access point from the hosts via workgroup bridge

only if I have static IPs but how can I configure my workgroup bridge or the access point so that I can get my clients behind the workgroup bridge to

get dynamic ip addresses from DHCP.

Re: Dynamic IP addresses

Hi ,

make sure you are running latest firmware on the wgb .

If you go in the wgb you can set it to get dynamic ip

WGB is layer2 so host behind it should get dynamic ip . If not troubleshoot on dhcp

server and see if dhcp server is getting discovery ?

On ap there is option wgb in infrastructure mode but that is for environment with

too many wgb

Re: Dynamic IP addresses

Hi Nilesh,

The WGB is running V8.24,I changed the config of the

WGB to get a dynamic address from the DHCP,but it only assigns a dynamic

address to WGB,which means DHCP can assign ip address to WGB

via Access-point but still clients behind the WGB can't get the dynamic address :(

Any Suggestions
