    Windows dhcp for the ruckus APs

    Smoothwall for all the SSIDs

    The problem is that I can't get the APs to get a DHCP address, and here is no ip helper on an hp 2510g.

    The vlan interface was created on a 3com switch layer 3 E5500.

    So the APs are trying to talk to DHCP but dont reach that far.

    This is the route an AP should take:

    AP --> HP 2920 --> HP 5406zl (core switch) --> 3com E5500 --> HP 2510 --> DHCP server

    ACLs on core switch allows all traffic on 172.17.80.0 to 0.0.0.0

    The vlan interface (gateway) was created on the 3com where as all others were created on core switches.

    I get the feeling I need to do. Something on the layer 3 3com to allow the APs to servers.

    Any help would be great!!

    I've set mine up in a similar way to yours and it seems to me that there is a VLAN issue here. I would start simple at first. Put all the APs on your default VLAN to ensure they can reach the DHCP server and create a WLAN on the default on too.

    Once you have them working then you can start tweaking it.

    PM me if you need any tips!

    I've now sorted it...... I didn't TAG the main vlan for ruckus on the core switch, I had left it UNTAGGED. I forgot it should have been setup as an uplink.

    Glad you sorted it - it's easy to miss things with vlans. Something I found out last week!
