In qMp system an interface (i.e eth0) can be configured as different modes:
4 1 Pau Escrich
5 1 Pau Escrich
* LAN The interfaces defined here are bridged and used to give IPs to the clients (by dhcp server)
6 1 Pau Escrich
* WAN The interfaces defined here are waiting for a dhcp reply to get the gateway configuration
7 1 Pau Escrich
* MESH The interfaces selected as mesh will use the dynamic routing protocols to reach the rest of nodes

qMp uses VLAN tagging to split the routing protocols and to be able to use a LAN device as WAN too and in the other side.

So in the next table can be seen how an interface "eth0" is configured depending on the mode.
