fun with Freifunk: got it installed on 3 routers now, only one of which has enough flash to install freifunk-recommended-en. I can't seem to figure out DHCP over OLSR; set ff_wldhcp to various things, currently 10.0.0.128/25,255.0.0.0 which I thought would give out IPs in the range 10.0.0.130 to 10.0.0.254 with a netmask of 255.0.0.0. but it's sometimes giving an IP in the range of 192.168.151.0/24, from the upstream router, and sometimes (as now) giving me 10.0.0.4, subnet mask 255.255.255.240, which works at the moment but is useless for when I add more routers. most of the advice I see on-net is misleading or flat-out wrong. seems to be a poorly-understood part of the setup, which is amazing to me because how could networks expand without DHCP? static IP assignment is a configuration nightmare. maybe there are more knowledgeable answers in German but mine is so rusty it's painful to try and grok it.
