Disabling LAN DHCP but keeping Wireless DHCP

    I was wondering if it was possible to disable DHCP on the LAN side/ports but keep it enabled for Wireless clients only. I have a wrt54gs connected to an existing network that uses static IP addresses but I'm using it as a gateway for wireless clients with Static DHCP. So I'm trying to keep the DHCP for the wireless but disable it for any PC that connects to the network via a cable.

    I couldn't find an option in the HyperWRT firmware but maybe I missed it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    it's not an option. perhaps there is an advanced dnsmasq command, but that would involve breaking the bridge and doing dhcp on a seperate vlan for wireless only.

    If you are setting static IP's on your wired clients, what does it matter? as long as you open the right ports between the wired and wireless
