Giving a bit more details about the network configuration could be
useful.. Do you run a bridge setup in which the AP is configured to
bridge packets between wired and wireless network or are you using IP
routing? Are you using IEEE 802.1X and dynamic WEP keys? Which DHCP
server are you using in the network? Can you run tcpdump on the AP to
verify that the DHCP request from the client is delivered correctly and
whether there is a reply from the server? Which version of the Host AP
driver are you using? Which Prism2 card and with which station firmware
