hi jan

your wlhdhcp settings are definitely wrong.
- /32 means a single host without network address and without a  
broadcast address. i think dnsmasq (or its startup script) will not  
eat that. if you want to narrow down your dhcp-range don't use /32,  
use at most someting like /30 (two hosts).
- the mask after the comma is far too wide. in a normal environment  
there is no reason to enter a different mask than the one before the  
comma. widening the second mask does not enable your laptop users to  
connect to other laptops which are not directly reachable (zero hops).

i suggest something like this:

i'm the author of dhcpsplash, so feel free to direct your questions  
to me. btw. a better place to discuss your kind of questions would be  
the wlanware mailinglist: https://freifunk.net/mailman/listinfo/wlanware
