I want to buy this device but I can't find any information about DHCP 'transparency'. I have allready DHCP server in my (wired) network and I'd like to connect some wireless clients. I plan to setup one WL-500g as an AP and another in mixed mode. Clients will be connected to the second WL-500g in ethernet ports and I'd like to let my current DHCP server assign IPs to all clients in my network.
So is this device transparent for DHCP packets?

For the AP mode - yes, for others - no, this not possible either.

Oleg, thank You for reply, but I'm not sure what does it mean for me.

I'll have this network setup:

Internet GW with NAT and DHCP server --> wired network --> AP1 --> wireless net --> wireless clients (each PC with own WiFi card) and wirelessly connected second wired network.

If I use two WL-500g one as a AP1 and another as a bridge(?) between wireless and second wired network, can I assign IP's from my DHCP server to all computers in whole network?

I hope wireless clients behind AP1 will see my DHCP server, but I'm not sure about wired clients in second network (behind second WL-500).
