    So i am using dnsmasq as a dhcp deamon.
    Now i want to have an infinite lease time so i changed the nvram value to dhcp_lease=infinite .
    The Problem is, for some reason this is not properly translated to the /tmp/dnsmasq.conf

    It reads:

    Notice the extra m behind infinite.
    This cause the dhcp lease time to be another vaule then infinite.
    Can someone confirm this behavior to me and a solution to it ?

    ps: I am using v23 SP1 06/03/06

    Hmmm figured this one out now

    It seems that the value of dhcp_lease is supposed to be a integer number only that specifies the dhcp lease time in minutes (because dd-wrt seems to be automatticly appending the m value)

    Unhandy if you ask me because there seems to be no way to change ddwrt from appending that letter "m"

    maybe something to fix in the next version ?
