Using WP7611, I am configuring my ecm like so:
configEcm on target 10.5.0.4 host 10.5.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
My question is, how does the WP7611 assign the host address? does it use dhcp?
What will happen if I add the USB connection to a bridge network? will it try to assign ip address/es to other devices on the bridge network?
My goal is to:
- Connect the WP7611 to a router via usb
- Add the new usb0 connection on the router to my LAN brige network
That way the WP7611 will be available to all devices on the LAN network.
Also I am assigning the address 10.5.0.1 statically to my router on the LAN network.
My concern is that the WP7611 might intrefere with the dhcp server on my router in some way.
I arranged this setup and everything seems to work. But I am afraid I might run into some edge cases.
