    Greetings all,

    I am trying to use dnsmasq on my WRT54G v2.0 to provide local naming to the computers on my LAN. Through the webbrowser interface I turned it on and lo and behold, I can ping, ssh, etc by name without a /etc/hosts file from any of the LAN computers. The next day, however, I cannot do any of these actions with each attempt resulting in a unknown host message on the console.

    The odd thing is if I go to the webbrowser interface ( and just hit Save Settings on the Administration tab, dnsmasq seems to work again for a while. Anybody hit me with a clue stick as to how to make dnsmasq work permanently with no intervention/resetting on my part? Do I have to change some conf file somewhere?

    Thanks for any help/enlightenment,
