hacking static dhcp

    I have a laptop that I sometimes connect via wireless, sometimes via ethernet, but never both. I'd like to make "duplicate" entries in static DHCP so that regardless of which method I use, it gets the same hostname and IP.

    Tomato currently isn't letting me do this; it complains both about the duplicate IP and duplicate hostname. Can I hack the static DHCP config file to bypass this check, and if so, where is the config located? (grepping /etc and /var/lib didn't turn up anything).

    Is there any downside to doing this that I'm not seeing? I guess the other option would be to set the MAC address of both interfaces to be the same, but that doesn't seem like a good idea for some reason...
