Client problems DHCP - DHCP Discover

I'm currently experiencing an issue with one of my APs (AP130) - recently installed and seems to be having trouble assigning certain clients DHCP addresses. I'm using 802.1x authentication and I can see clients have been put on to the correct VLAN.

From client monitor I can see that the 'station sent out DHCP DISCOVER message' followed by 'DHCP server sent out DHCP OFFER message to station' - but then the station doesn't respond and therefore sits on 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.X.X - I've got hundreds of clients associated across the site so the RADIUS and corresponding DHCP servers are working properly. It seems to be this AP - could it be as simple as firmware upgrade?

Yes, it could be related to AP model and HiveOS version. What version are you running? If not running the current version, you should upgrade.

To follow this up:- I have upgraded my AP 130's to 6.6r2a which seems to have helped greatly.
