DHCP through wireless router?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2xheSBQb3dlbGw=?=, Oct 1, 2005.

  1. I have a small network consisting of a single Windows 2003 Server, three
    wireless laptops, and three hard wired computers. the server is working
    overtime running DNS, DHCP, file server, RIS, and Exchange 2003. Traffic on
    my network is not a major issue and my server is loaded fairly well with
    memory and handles the jobs well. I have a single broadband connection using
    a cable modem. The cable modem is connected into a wireless router w/ 4 port
    hub. All workstations and the server are connected via this router.
    Anything hard wired directly into the router will pull an IP address from the
    server, however the laptops using the wireless connection will not
    successfully obtain an IP address. The wireless network is there and the
    laptops see it, they just never receive an address. If I statically set up
    the IP addresses, gateway, and DNS server adresses, all is well. Having the
    static addresses is not that big of a deal, but to be honest I just do not
    like not knowing why something is not working as it should and I would like
    to figure this out. If anyone has an suggestions or is able to point out
    something perhaps I have overlooked, your input would be greatly appreciated.
