Problems with DHCP on 2 antenna's

Fri May 28, 2010 9:19 am

Hello, they have asked me to solve a problem with a Winbox configuration that has 2 antenna's. 1 omni and 1 flatpanel that are both working on setting 23 (200mW). The antennas are configured as both ap-bridge, the reach is pretty good (nog good enough though) and both are on the same frequency. Strangely the clients that are trying to connect do not get a dhcp number although connected..... so internet is not possible (the get access through Antamedia). Any suggestions? I would really like to solve this problem today since i have to drive 2 hours to this location and i'm there today. Thanx !!!

btw: the clients also get no ip-number when using just 1 antenna. The get connected but without receiving dhcp....

I've actually get this issue as well. R52N card only ont he 5ghz range (using two of the same antennas). When this issue occurs (which is only sometimes) I have to disable the interface/bridge and enable it again - that's the only way I can get the DHCP pool to assign an address to the clients. I'm using an RB800 - and this issue occurs on both my cards.
