    Is there any way to have DHCP serving IPs to wireless clients only (no ehternet)?

    I've tried few DNSMASQ parameters but so far no luck.

    You might want to have a look at Tomato VLAN-GUI: it allows you to create up to 4 LAN bridges, each with it's own IP/network and DHCP server settings. Also, access/traffic between LAN arms can be configured via web interface (i.e. you may want to prevent WLAN clients from accessing wired LAN by default, but allow them to access a printer, etc...).

    If you're curious about how the web interface looks like, here's some screenshots taken from my WRT54GL v1.1:

    If you have a similar/compatible router, here's the link to download the firmware image I've been using on mine (the very same router the screenshots mentioned above were taken):

    Have you found any answer to this question other than reinstalling a different firmware? I have the same issue. I don't want to have to start over for just 1 simple option... I need to disable dhcp on the wired side. This is especially true for me because I installed and configured 3 of these radios over a year ago and it took me over a week. I already invested the time to get things set properly - except for this apparently. The issue has not become a problem until now.
