DHCP

Hello Rob,

Running the debian binary version of the ISC server, and it works fine
on the ethernet interface, as well as on the previous version of the
hostap drivers... I've added wlan0 to the startup script....

Ok at this point I'll eat my own words due to the fact that the debian
version if you add the interface to the startup script will be
overwritten by the instance loaded from /etc/default/dhcp...

problem solved...

Thanks anyways :)

PS side note: another neat example you can add for use of bridging is
to bridge 2 wireless interfaces, currently I have an SMC pcmcia nic
(built in antenna) and a dwl520 (external antenna slotted wave guide),
and i can roam between the 2 networks and not require IP changes
etc...

I'm using the 2 interfaces for inside/outdoor (and shared) networks...
