DHCP clients don't receive address



  • I have pfSense 2.0.1-RELEASE working as a dual-WAN router to a single LAN. The LAN has approximately 40 clients. However, several LAN clients simply do not acquire a dhcp address from pfSense, while others do. It's a varied network, with Windows and Mac clients, as well as several routers for wireless access. The main problem is some routers will not acquire an address, and some PCs and Macs will not acquire an address. Manual configuration of each client works fine. But I really don't have time to configure everyone manually. Any ideas?

    Does pfSense see the DHCP request from the systems which don't acquire an address? (See Status -> System Logs and click on DHCP tab)
