1220 Access Points Dhcp Issue

I have two 1220 ap's plugged into an unmanaged switch. I'm able to connect to the ap but I'm unable to receive dhcp info from our server. We have a 2950 switch that feeds to one of the unmanaged switch's and the other unmanaged switch is plugged into the other switch. What am I missing in the config to allow dhcp to the client? Do I need to add and ip helper on the 2950 that feeds the unmanged switches? Thanks to all

Re: 1220 Access Points Dhcp Issue

I too am having trouble with my 1240 AG and DHCP. I would try this:

Connect to the router using the web GUI.

Go into System Software and System Configuration.

Click on show tech support.

Click on Configure

Click on IP

Click on DHCP Server

Enter in the DHCP server name or IP address and click on Address.

This should spawn DHCP to the client.

Once this is completed you can go back and view the config file and see the DHCP server listed. I hope this helps!

Re: 1220 Access Points Dhcp Issue

I don't have that option in Vxwors. I'm running Vxworks version Cisco 1200 Series AP 12.01T1. Maybe if I telnet into the ap I can find this option? Thanks
