DHCP address assignment required
I have been working with Cisco on an intermittent issue with some Android devices not being able to get a DHCP address or keep their connection once they get an IP. At their suggestion, I changed the QoS to Silver from Gold. That helped. But, as the debugs I sent them show, some Androids are slow at requesting a new DHCP address. (This is similar to the problem defined by Princeton University. ) Cisco TAC now is suggesting I enable, â€œDHCP address assignment requiredâ€. While I like that it would stop wireless devices from statically assigning themselves addresses, I am concerned about the caveats to the feature. The documentation suggests that it can have problems with non-Windows device (which means most of my clients) and can cause delays when roaming. Do you have the feature enabled? If so, do you have problems with gaming systems or mobile phones?
