    Hi,

    Is there a way to set sequential IP assignment for non-static IP's?
    There's no particular reason, just checking because I remember I could on a linux server and would be cool having on the router now.

    Dnsmasq man page:

    You'll have to set it in a dnsmasq.conf.add file.

    Thanks!


    I have added the line and found that my phone couldn't get IP after adding "--dhcp-sequential-ip" (my phone has static IP assigned). After removing it and restarting service again to apply change issue solved. Any idea why?

    Didn't check yet non-static ip's if they are assigned sequentially.

    Remove the two dashes in front when adding an option to the config file. The two dashes are only used when manually starting dnsmasq from command line
