Question about Wireless Access Points
I have a Netgear WG102 wireless PoE AP configured with VLANs connected to a tagged port on an Extreme Summit X450e (Layer-3).
Wireless clients can obtain the correct DHCP network address per VLAN however packet loss is 75-100%.
Netgear support states as long as Extreme hardware adheres to the standards it should work.
We have a MPLS network using different Cisco router models with no VLAN issues.
The Netgear WG102 AP works fine without 802.1q VLAN enabled.
that is right the access point does not have a dhcp server. that will give an ip address to all of your computers or device connected to it wireless. If you have a modem with a dhcp server there will be no problem with the IP but if the modem does not you must have a router and now an access point.

the cisco1130ag will provide ip addresses and serve as a DHCP server for your laptops...
You still need an IP address for your 1130ag so either your ISP provides you a static ip that you can put in the 1130 or if your ISP provides dhcp then you should be able to plug and play with your 1130ag

I have solved the problem:
- first, I had to change the management address in CF-WFAP into address that could be recognized by the router (i used 192.168.1.2),
- DHCP turned off, and set default gateway and DNS to 192.168.1.1. as in router, computer IP was set to 192.168.1.xxx, push "apply", change web address to new one,
- set AP mode to station-infrastructure, push "apply" buton to restart AP,
- set security to same security as in router and copy key into proper field, push "apply" again to reset the AP
- finaly check wireless station around and choose the router (same encription)

Check in your router to see if your router is set up to be a DHCP Server. If your router and adsl are both set up to be DHCP servers, sometimes they will fight with each other and some computers seem to have problems getting adresses from this kind of setup. Make sure that only one is set up to give out adresses, then check on your second computer to make sure that it is set to obtain adress automaticaly. If someone has set a manual adress in that computer that is not on the same subnet as the router, they will not comunicate. If this does not solve your problem, try putting in manual adresses into both computers: IE 192.168.1.2, subnet mask 255.255.255.0, Default gateway 192.168.1.1 in the first, and 192.168.1.3 in the second with the same subnet and default gateway,

create a new vlan (eg vlan 10)
then ensure that the ethernet port is the same bridge group number as the new vlan (bridge-group 10)
do the same for the wireless port
then shut down vlan 1

It sounds like either a faulty cable, a loose cable (i.e. not plugged in securely), or failed autonegotiation, or the port on the switch or WAP has somehow become disabled. Since that model of WAP has auto-crossover capability, using a crossover or regular network cable would be irrelevant. What kind of switch are you plugging it into? Cisco switches, for example, can have MAC restrictions or othe security features. I would replace the cable with a known good one first, and examine the log on the WAP as well as the switch (if it's a manageable switch). Let me know how you make out and we can do some further testing if you'd like.
