Hi John,

Please download the latest 'development' version of ap-utils, and read
ap-tftp manpage, particularly the section dealing with 'ARP PING' feature.
It might eventually shed some light onto your problems I guess (at
least, 'automagical change of APs IP address' is, to my knowledge,
only possible if ARP PING is involved).
