Description: Configure a Wireless Access Point to have the functionality of a DHCP server.
Configure Access Point AP1 to function as a DHCP server as well. The parameters are: IP Address range, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS Primary, and DNS Secondary.
DHCP Parameters to be set on AP1:
|DHCP: Address range||192.168.1.4 to 192.168.1.254|
1. Open AP1 properties by clicking on the icon. Set the IP address and subnet mask to 192.168.1.3 and 255.255.255.0 respectively.
2. Enable DHCP button. Configure IP address range as 192.168.1.4 to 192.168.1.254
3. Subnet mask 255.255.255.0, and default gateway 192.168.1.1
4. Configure DNS Primary as 126.96.36.199 and DNS Secondary as 188.8.131.52
5. Save and exit configuration.
Notes: In pure sense, a wireless access point is nothing but a wireless switch (layer 2 switch). However, additional functionalities are usually built in to the access point. These include that of a DHCP server and a Gateway. By making an access point multi functional, manufacturers are able to reduce the number of devices that needs to be used for accomplishing a task like accessing Internet using a wireless client.
