DHCP Server options

I presently have 2 access points (1230)on my wireless network, each is setup as a DHCP server and each is assigning a different block of addresses. With more access points expected in the near future I am wondering if I should setup one dedicated DHCP server (Windows box) for centralized administration and turn off the access points DHCP server feature. any suggestions?

also, If i disable the access points DHCP server do I have to enable any relay agent on the access point or with clients that connect to the access point get an IP address automatically from teh windows DHCP server?


Re: DHCP Server options

Centralised DHCP is generally the way to go for most applications.

Just delete the DHCP Server config from the Access Points, and create a helper-address on the VLAN interface, pointing at the DHCP Server.

Remember that roaming between L3 subnets isn't possible without a Wireless LAN Controller or WLSM.
