How to config Dnsmasq as DHCP?

    I tried disabling DHCP option in Basic > Network and adding
    "dhcp-range=192.168.1.193,192.168.1.253,12h" in Advanced > DHCP/DNS > Dnsmasq Custom Configuration but no luck.
    Am I missing something? What should a Dnsmasq dhcp configuration look like?

    And, is it possible to tag dhcp discovery from wireless interface for separated ip pool?

    Why would you want to set dhcp like that when people have already gone to the trouble of coding a gui for it..

    Because the GUI don't support assigning a different subnet in DHCP,
    and I could use multiple IP ranges/subnets to offer connectivity to some untrusted machines and free public wifi.

    That router could be more capable than what I previously know. And I believe squeezing every bit of it is one of the main reasons people look into Tomato, instead of buying a new one.

    I totally agree the GUI is good for basic (common!) settings, but I do some intense manual dnsmasq configuration myself (dhcp,PXE,static routes to client, NTP,.pac location and so on)
