Re: WAP54G IP DHCP problem

I assume is the IP of your Gateway including DHCP server.


If so then upgrade the firmware to 3.04.03 then reset the WAP54G and reconfigure it.

Re: WAP54G IP DHCP problem

Try to reset and reconfigure the Acess Point...If that doesnot resolve the problem then,upgrade the firmware of WAP54G.

You will get the firmware from the website

Re: WAP54G IP DHCP problem

you can manually set the IP address in alternate configuration when the IP address can't be obtained from your server .
