Hi Everybody! When I set up a Hotspot on my ZF7762 it stops giving IP, but when i remove the Hotspot and let the wifi normal, everything works fine, why is that?? Hotspot matter with DHCP or something like that? The ap is connected directly to internet.

Hi Oswaldo Rodriguez,

There is no relation between hotspot and DHCP in general however if you are using VLAN on hotspot WiFI and no VLAN or different one may cause issues due to misconfiguration somewhere. Just for my clarification:

What is firmware version you are running?
Is it a standalone or controller managed?
Could you please show us a screenshot of your hotspot configuration?

Advice - if you running anything less than 9.8 version then please upgrade to 9.8, try again, if it still the same issue then please connect back here.

Hola Oswaldo,

Nosotros estamos empezando con el mismo proyecto.

Es verdad que el hotspot no tiene nada que ver con DHCP, pero probablemente tu problema, es porque en la configuración de la subnet asignas al VLAN ID 1 y el HotSpot no lo hace, prueba las opciones:
Dynamic VLAN y DHCP Option 82.\

Saludos.

Gracias! Encontré cual era el error.
La red 5G estaba habilitada con el mismo nombre de red de la 2.4G pero la 5G no tenía el hotspot configurado, por lo que seguramente los equipos se estaban intentado conectar a la red 5G y no podían conseguir la IP.
