WAP321 - DHCP for wifi clients not working

Hello Harvey,

     We need a little bit more information.

-What kind of switch do you have?

-What Vlan(s) are you using?

-What ip address did you configure for the WAP321?

-Are the devices able to actually connect to the SSID but just not get an ip address?

-If you plug a PC into the same port that you are plugging the WAP into is the computer able to pull an ip address?

It should be pretty straight forward at this point though. As long as the AP is able to reach your DHCP server then the AP is just going to be a passthrough for your clients when it comes to getting a DHCP address.

Thanks,

Re: WAP321 - DHCP for wifi clients not working

Due to a earlier print issue I've reset the WAP321 and uploaded the latest firmware. Which seems to have fix the printer issues but not fix my DHCP request issue.

Been doing some more digging and drilled it down a little further.

What I have is unmanage switch(no vlan) which is connected to WAP321(with static IP).

I'm able to wifi SSID connect ok with the OSX laptop i.e. request DHCP work.

Now i'm running a VM on this laptop ( Virtual Box running FreeBSD )

VM/FreeBSD boots but is unable to get DHCP requests.

If i connect the laptop to another wifi AP point the same virtual box VM/FreeBSD - i'm able to get DHCP requests

(note: AP different make & connected to same unmanage switch)

Seems to surgest WAP321 could still be the issue.

Although (Virtual Box + FreeBSD VM) could also be an issue - which is beyond this forum.
