You can run

The native dhcpd does not allow any changes to
It does. I had set it up and it was working properly on 31st.
I think it was a combination of settings that allowed dhcp. Cause when
we disabled dhcp in the web i/f and tried to create a udhcpd.conf
file it simply refused to run on ANY interface.
was working fine for WLAN, not OLSR, because if I'm not mistaken,
there's a different interface for OLSR, bridged with the actual
WLAN interface. The DHCP server was running on the WLAN interface
rather than the OLSR interface.
The OLSR i/f is for the backbone routing. running dhcp on this will
open a new can of worms requiring dhcp forwarding etc.
There is provision. I did the last time. Edit the
/etc/local.udhcpd.conf file. Either that or something similar. It
allows you to run DHCP on any interface.

we were stupid - but i am sure that it's not the case.
Can someone please post the ifconfig output on the

internet directly through its WAN port.
