I'd like to add a few hours during the night on the remaining dhcp lease time to the wan side. Reason for this, I want a fresh IP the next morning when I resume my Internet activities :)
My Cablemodem assigns me a fresh IP if I don't request a new one for about at least 3 hours. Usually my Cablemodem gives me a DHCP lease time of 60 minutes.
So my question is: Is there a way to add some time on the remaining dhcp lease during the night? I thought about killing dnsmasq/udhcpc on 2 am, and restart the service on 6 am. I was unable to do so with "service udhcpc stop", it just won't stop. I also need a working DHCP server giving IPs out to my LAN during the night.
I tried IPTABLES, but I think due to the lack of experience with that subject, I was unable to do so. Some people say on google, that DHCP requests can't be blocked via IPTABLES, since dnsmasq/udhcpc bypasses it (something with RAW sockets?).
Killing the wan service works, but I want to continue surfing the internet, until my Cablemodem decides, I need a fresh lease and blocks me out.
I was looking for something in the nvram, with "nvram show | grep" with wan/lan/lease/dhcp etc. but I couldn't find anything related.
I'd really appreciate it if someone has an idea what I can do.
