 +The network configuration above did not work for me.  I wanted all four wired ports to be on the same bridge and to get their address over DHCP.  After begging for some help on the openwrt forums, I got the following recipe to work:
 +config interface loopback

 +    option proto    static
 +    option ipaddr ​
 +    option netmask ​
