DHCP Server

You need a DHCP server. The DHCP server in the 2106 can't hand out the special options (43 and 6,) which seems dumb. You can't use LWAPP Layer 2, either.

apt-get install dhcpd3-server

Configure the DHCP server. /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf Note that "option ap-name code 60 = text" adds option 60.

ddns-update-style none;
option ap-name code 60 = text;
option ap-ip code 43 = text;
default-lease-time 600;
max-lease-time 7200;
authoritative;
log-facility local7;
subnet 172.16.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
  range 172.16.1.100 172.16.1.150;
  option domain-name-servers 172.16.1.2;
  option routers 172.16.1.254;
  option broadcast-address 172.16.1.255;
  option ap-name "Cisco AP.LAP1510";
  option ap-ip "172.16.1.253";
