  • Wifi & DHCP! ANNOYING!

    morning

    what should be an easy task is driving me up the wall.

    New wireless router...

    Trying to get client to connected to wireless. Cannot connect doesn't get an IP
    Static doesn't work either.

    Router is in a dmz running off the back off a firewall. Router DHCP is disabled.

    any help!

    Re: Wifi & DHCP! ANNOYING!

    I've never used a DMZ on a network so the following may not be correct.

    Where is the DHCP server on the network? If it is on your LAN and you have DHCP relay disabled, any client presumably connecting from within a DMZ will be unable to get an IP address.

    How is the wireless router set up? Where is it located on the LAN?

    Sorry if I'm barking up the wrong tree - if I am perhaps someone else can offer better advice.

      well the router is in a dmz with a range of 192.168.1.x

      this plugs into a firewall which is on 192.168.16.x

      the dhcp server is on the 192.168.16.x range

      im thinking it could be a router issue rather than my dhcp

        Yes, but because the connecting client and the DHCP server are on different subnets and DHCP relay is disabled there is, presumably, no way the client can contact the DHCP server via the wireless router and request an address.

          your right dhcp relay is disabled on the router. however enabling it makes no difference

            Presumably the firewall needs to be configured so that the DHCP requests are allowed between the DMZ and the subnet the DHCP server resides on.

            I can only advise that you check the documentation for your firewall. That's what I would check next.

              you mentioned that a static address didn't work either. What static address did you giv eit ?

                Also, another thought - check your DHCP scope(s) - do you have enough addresses left for new clients?
