I need your help please. In the system log this shows up several times.

DHCP packet received on wan which has no address

How do I resolve this?

I have a WR941ND, PPPOE wan, wifi network. I do not know how to go to this "etc/config/dhcp:"
Can I resolve this via LuCi? Please step by step. Thanks!

Running RC1 on TL WR-941 ND v3 still getting this message in system log

I can confirm adding '''except-interface=wan''' to '''/etc/dnsmasq.conf''' solved my problem.

The discussion might have continued from here.
