 Subject:  DHCP and bridged interfaces
 Date:  Tue, 21 Aug 2007 17:43:39 -0600
Hello all,

I've been checking the list archives, as well as the forum (and posted in
there), but haven't been able to find out what is wrong here.

I have a WRAP box with two wired interfaces (WAN/sis1 and Wired/sis0) and
one wireless (LAN/ath0 via a mini-PCI card).  Running m0n0wall 1.3b2.  Wired
is bridged with LAN (  DHCP server is set to run on "LAN
interface" and hand out  "Deny unknown clients" is not

When I check the logs, it says the DHCP server is running on and handing out
IPs "via ath0", including at boot:

  dhcpd: Listening on BPF/ath0/00:0b:6b:0a:81:f4/192.168.2/24
  dhcpd: Sending on BPF/ath0/00:0b:6b:0a:81:f4/192.168.2/24
  dhcpd: Sending on Socket/fallback/fallback-net

However, I cannot actually get an IP on the wireless network; only wired
clients are getting IP addresses.

Is there some problem with running the DHCP server on a bridged connection
to serve both my wired and wireless internal clients on the same internal
network (

Thanks in advance for any help!
