In our case, the problem is the DHCP is out of the IP addresses. We find more and more people bring smartphones and tablets with them. These wifi devices take the IP addresses from the DHCP and sometimes, the AP doesn't release the IP addresses even the device left. We fix this problem by upgrade Cisco AP ISO or upgrade them to Wireless LAN Controller.
