You can run DHCPD on multiple ports today with independent ranges.  I have a
4511 set up essentially the same as what you have here, but I'm using a PC
card for the wireless interface.  The wireless interface is publishing
leases for one ( subnet and the LAN interface is publishing
leases for a different (  In the case of the LAN subnet, the
DHCP clients are connected via a wireless bridge to the LAN port.

Subject: [m0n0wall] DHCP on Bridged Interfaces

I have a 5 monowalls on Soekris 4801's very stable devices.  I ran into my
first issue.  Nothing major, i can take care of it simply by setting up a
Hub or simple routing.

My Setup is 

[---- WAN (sis0)---] [---- LAN (sis1)---] [---- WIFI (sis2)---]

I bridged the sis2 to the LAN and plugged in a linksys WAP54G V2 so we could
get 802.11g wireless.  Everything works fine, there is a computer that is
plugged into the LAN(sis1) port via a crossover cable.  Then the problem
lies on the Sis2 port.  It works fine, i can access the the network and get
thru the monowall, however dhcpd does not appear to be listening on sis2
wont renew an ip address.  It works fine on the LAN port.

Like I said not a big deal, many ways around it, but i was wondering if
maybe that should be a feature in the future to be able to bind DHCP to
multiple interfaces or possibly have dhcpd running w/ a range of address's
for each port.

Input is appreciated.
