repeater gives no DHCP love

Situation:

2 Cisco Aironet 1200 APs

one is root, other is repeater

Clients associating to the root have no problems, but clients who are associating with the repeater don't get an IP address.

Setting an IP address manually DOES work so I guess that for some reason the requests are being dropped.

Why though, has me stumped.

I would do a ping test from the AP and then one from the repeater back to the switch and see if there is any disparity betwwen the times. There should be, since a repeater effectively halves the throughput of an AP.

The question hereis how bad.

Pings and data throughput are just fine.

Even roaming works as it should.

I haven't configured any access-lists, or mac filters.

Why dhcp isn't working has me stumped.
