Greetings; When watching the messages log, I see DHCPDISCOVER requests sent to 255.255.255.255 on a network restart, and they fail after SoftMac says its Associated, I assume with the wap11 access point sitting about 20" away since the MAC addresses of the wap11 are correctly displayed in the messages log. Is this DHCPDISCOVER doing it correctly? -- Cheers, Gene "There are four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, and ammo.
