Just to clarify

by robo_dev In reply to i can not get a dhcp from ...

an AP is a mac-layer bridge, so it's IP settings are completely irrelevant to your problem.

If that WLAN device is really a router and not an AP, that's a different story..

When you say 'cannot get a DHCP' you mean that a wireless workstation cannot get an address?

What is the DHCP server in your network? Is your router the DHCP server or the SBS server?

You say you 'set the router to manual IP' mean the WAN side of the router, correct? IF so, that does not matter....

Authorized in AD

Have you authorized the DHCP server? Is there any listing in Computer Management for DHCP? Anything in the event logs?
