is it possible the use dnsmasq without the dhcp server. For me it only worked by activating the dhcp server. I guess it should somehow? DNSMASQ can also be used without a dhcp server on various linux distros?
yes I can disable the dhcp server and use a static ip for my pc. But I want to use the dhcp server from my fritzbox, if I use dhcp forwarder then dnsmasq is disabled? I have connected the router with the wan port and activated a dhcpserver hat has a different ip range, but I want that all my devices are in the same range and only use the dnsmasy option. So I thought that it is possible to just acivate dnsmasq and use some lines with e.g. -> server=/homepage.com/184.108.40.206
I use the following model -> Linksys WRT54G/GL/GS
DD-WRT v3.0-r44863 mini (11/24/20)
Actually I use the following configuration: 10.0.0.138 is the Fritzbox and I wanna know if all devices can get an ip from the dhcpserver of the fritzbox but the devices that are connected to that router should use the dnsmasq option so that a few urls use a special dns server?
it is quite simple. There are no special settings on the fritzbox there is only the dhcp server running and no additional settings were set. The dd-wrt router is connected to the fritzbox (10.0.0.133) and has a static ip (10.0.0.134). All I want is just use the dnsmasq capability of the router as the fritzbox doesnt have this capability. I want that all the devices connected to the router will get an ip of the fritzbox. It is configured like a WAP.
Services -> DNSMAS is checked
Setup -> Use DNSMasq for DNS is checked
DHCPSERVER is disabled.
It doesn't work?
The general rule to most networking is that if something can be set without setting other things, it probably will work. That being said some things might not be noticeable. The answer most certainly is yes. Dd-wrt has a dhcp forwarder.
