/etc/init.d/S50dnsmasq gets dhcp_num nvram setting wrong

Reported by: iwilcox@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version:
Keywords: dhcp_num dnsmasq Cc:



/etc/init.d/S50dnsmasq contains:

num=$(nvram get dhcp_num)

...making 'num' the end of the range...followed by:

eval $(ipcalc $ipaddr $netmask $start $num)

but ipcalc is expecting its fourth argument to be a count, not the range end.
This means you end up with more dynamic DHCP leases than you ask for.
Being very new to OpenWrt, and not knowing what else might use ipcalc, I just removed the "num=start+..." line from S50dnsmasq. That worked for me.
