    Default dhcp help please

    trying to get dhcp running after creating AP and then trying to receive an IP
    I think my problem is with DHCP
    please could someone point me in the right direction as how to start and test if dhcpd is running
    to start I tried dhcpd -f ath0
    I get message No Subnet Declaration for ath0 (
    I have set up subnet in /etc/dhcpd.conf
    I am sure it is seeing the conf file because it crashed when I had a typo!
    many thanks

    I don't know the answer to what you're asking but what I would do is run up Wireshark and take a look at the DHCP frames, see what they're saying.

    If fail, plz post your dhcpd.conf to help with further instructions.

    don't know what the -f flag is just do dhcpcd ath0, if it gets the dhcp proable isn't turned on.
