Can an ap541n be configured to act as a dhcp server and hand out dhcp IP addresses to wireless pc'ss?

We have an ap541n-a-k9 wireless unit.  When a user connects thru the wireless device into our network the laptop grabs a DHCP IP address from our intranal DHCP server.  However, we are running out of IPs.  Can the ap541n unit be configured to act as a DHCP server and hand out DHCP IP's of its own? if so, how?

thanks in advance

Hello,The AP541 is just an

Hello,

The AP541 is just an access point, and does not function as a DHCP server.  You may be able to setup a second VLAN if your router supports it and then create a second DHCP pool for it, giving you more addresses.  You can also look into expanding your DHCP scope to something larger so there are more addresses available.

Hope that helps,
