At an accommodation house for our company staff, We have about 10 Access Points and they are all connected to a Router, which is then connected to an optical fiber internet connection. The Access Points don't have static IPs.
Due to the fact that most of the Access Points are old Cisco WAP2000, initially we had issues with devices connecting to the network especially Apple devices. That issue was mostly resolved by keeping the security at WEP standard (I know it is not secure but we can ignore that in this case). Now, to resolve further connectivity issues, I was thinking about activating DHCP on the APs, so the devices will get IPs directly from APs rather than putting load on the main Router. Is it a good idea in this case? or is it generally good or bad to have DHCP activated on AP rather than asking Router to assign IPs to devices connected?
