No DHCP issued to clients connected to wireless AP.


I have replaced an Enterasys switch with a new X440G2-48p everything works fine except when devices connect to a Ruckus AP attached to the switch the devices do not obtain IP addresses.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Baz, can you show the configuration of the ports connected to the AP both pre and post-switch swap? On the newer switch "sho port x info detail" where x is the port should provide everything. Also, where is DHCP being delivered from? I'm assuming that the ruckus and DHCP were working in the prior environment (not new to the environment)?

Hi Ric

Thanks for the reply the AP was working fine prior to changing the switch, DHCP comes via our DHCP server in our DC downstairs, I have taken the AP off the ceiling and plugged it into a spare port at my desk and it works fine when clients connect they get an IP address without issue (different switch) Unfortunately I do not have the config for the Enterasys as it has been utilized elsewhere after wiping it.

Could you please connect the client again to the SSID and then run the following on the switch....

show port 47 vlan
show fdb | i 47

Also please provide the AP and client MAC.
