[Commotion-discuss] Bridge Ethernet and Mesh Interfaces

Hi All,

I have a bit of a non-standard configuration and would like to know if 
what I would like is possible.

I have a Nanostation M2 colocated on the roof of a local datacenter, 
connected back to a Mikrotik rb2011 which routes to the Internet, as 
well as several other amateur radio networks.  I currently have the M2 
flashed with commotion firmware and have the mesh interface and the two 
Ethernet interfaces bridged together. The Mikroitk RB2011 has been 
assigned a IP and can successfully communicate with the M2 
AND with mesh devices.

What I would like to do is have the M2 advertise as a gateway to all 
mesh clients, however, that does not appear to be possible to configure 
via the GUI.  when I go to Basic setup -> Additional Network Interfaces 
and UNSELECT the option to mesh with other devices and set the DHCP 
otpion to 'Do nothing with DHCP' I receive the following error:

Failed to execute cbi dispatcher target for entry '/admin/commotion/basic/addtl_net_ifaces'.
The called action terminated with an exception:
/usr/lib/lua/luci/model/cbi/commotion/basic_ani.lua:67: bad argument #1 to 'ipairs' (table expected, got string)
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'assert'
	?: in function 'dispatch'
	?: in function <?:194>

Any Ideas on how to proceed?
