    DHCP problem across wireless since scope change

    Some of my DHCP clients have a problem picking up their IP reservations if they try to connect via their wireless interface.

    Connections via the normal wired RJ45 links appear to be OK.

    Are wireless access points layer 2 or layer 3?

    Should it matter that the client IPs are on a different subnet to the one being used to control the WAP?

    If there's a DHCP/BOOTP relay running on the AP that might be the cause.

    Thanks Geoff. I'll take a look.
    I don't remember turning anything like that on.
