Where are you packet capturing ?
 - Capturing all packets coming from the server by IP address and all
packets to and from the AP by MAC address

What's your setup ?
 - Not sure what setup you are referring to. I have the AP, the DHCP server,
and the capture PC all connected to the same hub and then uplinked to the
main network. I can see all traffic on the hub.

Do you run any firewalls/packet filters anywhere ?
 - No, not that would effect this setup.

Is the client network local or remote to the server ?
 - Local
