openwrt in METAROUTER as DHCP server

Tue Feb 21, 2017 12:49 am

Hi guys,

I am new to mikrotik and my device is RB450G.
For some special reasons, i wish to boot an openwrt image in metarouter, and use dnsmasq of it as DHCP server.
In routeros, i bridged port ether3, 4 and 5.
In Metarouter, i set the interface as dynamic and bridged it to ether 3, 4, and 5.
I turned off the DHCP server in ROS and tried to start dnsmasq in openwrt, but i can't get IP address when ether 3 is plugged in.

Could any one help me with it?
how can i get it work?

Thanks very much for your help

What you did sounds completely reasonable to me, and I would expect that to work. Have you made sure that networking between the guest and host is working at the most basic level? (e.g., set a static IP on the OpenWRT guest, set an IP in the same subnet on the bridge interface of the host, and ping back and forth between host and guest)
