[OLSR-users] Strange problem with the dyn_gw plugin

I had another dyn-gw-problem with "freifunk"-firmware on a SE-505: I activated the WAN-port, and with or without explicit definition of the HNA-entry the AP reacted the same way. It announced HNA for about two minutes and then switched HNA and internet-routing off. A ping from the PC to the internet stopped responding, but ping from the AP itself showed that the WAN-connection was still active.

The WAN-connection is by fixed IP to an internet-router.

The easy solution was to deactivate dyn-gw and enter a fixed HNA=
Now it works. But Dyn-GW would be better because then HNA would switch off when the internet-connection fails.

I was surprised that the HNA was also announced if I entered nothing in the HNA-field, even then it announced (for two minutes)

One question on dyn-gw: what happens when the connection from the AP to the internet-router is OK  but the router itself  has no connection to the internet? Is dyn-gw smart enough to switch off HNA in that situation?
