If you want to configure DHCP service in Cisco Aironet 1100 and 1200 series Access Points its pretty simple. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server capability was first available on the Cisco Aironet 1100 and 1200 series Access Points (APs) in version 12.2(11)JA1.

When an AP is configured as a DHCP server, it can provide IP addresses to an Ethernet-capable PC connected to its Ethernet port or to wireless client devices that associate to the AP.

Following example shows how to configure DHCP service on the Cisco Aironet 1100 and 1200 series Access Points

ITKE-AP01#configure terminal

ITKE-AP01(config)#ip dhcp excluded-address –

ITKE-AP01(config)#ip dhcp pool ITKE

ITKE-AP01(dhcp-config)# network

ITKE-AP01(dhcp-config)#lease 20
