    Question WiFi Connectivity Issue - DHCP...

    Hi there guys,

    Access point specs

    Dlink 900AP+
    Firmware 2.61
    Encryption WEP 128-bits

    Laptop Wireless Device

    Intel pro/wireless 2200BG - on an HP nx5000 laptop


    We always get a strong connection, but we cannot provide the laptop with
    an IP address from our DHCP server.

    This is an intermittent problem, as in other offices we are successfully able to assign
    the laptop with a dynamic IP address.

    Has anyone experienced a similar problem? Were you successful in finding a solution?

    Thanks guys.

    Do the other access points you've used have 128-bit WEP enabled? Are you absolutely positive that the Laptop has the correct WEP? Do you have Mac filtering or any other security features on, or is a WEP key the only security feature enabled? Is this laptop the only machine that has issues with using the wireless access point? What is different between this access points in the other office and this one (settings, models, etc.)?
