A question about Access Point IP
I have 3 Access Point connected to pfsense
all have Fixed address
This first is Cisco Access Point
And the other two
are routers converted to Access Point
They are working correctly
All well and good
Except for one thing
Each Access Point has IP
but in the DHCP leases i can see only the Cisco Access Point IP (192.168.0.25)
I do not see the IP of the other two 192.168.0.27 and 192.168.0.28
I have access to their management interface
They work right
But they do not appear in the DHCP leases
How do I do that they will appear ?
Are they static? Most converted routers as AP don't have option to set dhcp on lan interface.. So you would have had to set them static on the devices. I would for sure make sure that is outside your dhcp scope.
They have Fixed address (static)
They have been working for a year maybe a little more
Both have address outside the pool addresses 192.168.0.101 and 192.168.0.102
the pool addresses is 192.168.0.2-99
Just a month ago I connected the Cisco Access Point
And I noticed that you can see his IP address in the DHCP leases
so I changed the addresses of the routers
to Addresses in pool Addresses 192.168.0.27 and 28
But not like Cisco
there IP Not appears

The Cisco, as AP only device, actually pulls its IP via DHCP, hence it's in your list.
Your other two devices are configured with static addresses as you stated. A static address is not a DHCP lease so why should it show up in the lease table? That address never was requested.
Static IPs in the pool is asking for ISSUES.. I would highly suggest you move devices that are static outside your pool.. Or you have the "possible" issue of the dhcp server handing out an lease for the same IP a device has setup static which is asking for a bad day..
the pool is from 192.168.0.30 to 99
all address from 192.168.0.2 to 29 Saved
for Static address
I changed the addresses of the routers back to 192.168.0.101 and 102

You can manually add them to the list of static IP's if you want to "see" them in your list.
You could make static DHCP mappings for all three of the AP's, and configure them either as DHCP or static according to what they support. That way they would all be within the DHCP pool without fear of DHPC assigning the addresses to some other device.
Ah, Jailer, you beat me to it.
wifi routers being used as AP rarely support dhcp on the lan interface.. But sure if they support dhcp then he could create reservations - but they would still be outside the pool, reservations with pfsense dhcp server are always outside the pool.
