Splitting WLAN from LAN

Hi all,

I would like to create a different subnet for my WLAN (from the physical ports). I tried to tinker with the dnsmasq.conf but it doesn't quite work. I think the LAN section is conflicting with the WLAN section. How can I split the WLAN from the LAN? Or should I have individual entries for each of the LAN ports?

See attached files, thanks!

thanks!

Not sure if that's possible w/ Merlin (at least using the GUI, maybe from the CLI). The problem is NOT DNSMasq per se. It's the fact that the wired and wireless network interfaces are *bridged* by default. To get the change you want, you need to *first* remove the wireless network interface from that bridge (usually br0) so it stands alone, then configure it separately w/ its own IP network, DHCP server, etc., using DNSMasq.

So I recommend digging around the forum further to see if someone has already accomplished that (probably has been done).

yup that's what I was thinking needs to be done (splitting WLAN or the physical ports from the bridge). Hoping someone has done it before.
