Default [Q]UK SKY Fibre / MER Encapsulation

Hi,

I'm new to the forums, & I am considering replacing my router(s) with the RT-AC66U & Merlin. But before I plonk down my cash, I need the following questions answered (I have searched before posting but can find nothing in the Merlin forum).

I run 2 FTC VDSL lines, one of which is provided by SKY, which requires MER encapsulation to get a WAN IP address. My current set-up uses DD-WRT with the following script to enable this functionality:

STARTUP SCRIPT:
killall udhcpc
/usr/sbin/udhcpc -i eth1 -V "5.27.1a4N|PCBAFAST2504Nv1.0" -c "##SKYUN&PW##" -p /var/run/udhcpc.pid -s /tmp/udhcpc &


NB: In the Startup Script eth1 is the designation of the WAN port.

Will Merlin support this config?

My Second question concerns DNSMasq.
I use DNSMasq to assign specific clients to my secondary gateway/router, using the following additional commands (again in DD-WRT):

dhcp-mac=Infinity,00:01:2E:##:##:##
dhcp-option = net:Infinity, option:router, 10.66.77.1
dhcp-option = net:Infinity, 6, 10.66.77.1


Reading through the forums I am fairly confident this DNSMasq config can be achieved with Merlin, but I would be grateful if someone can confirm it is possible for me.

Thanks in advance

Minty
