I have had problems with the above line myself, one with the url one
character short
so mine looks like this ...
# All options for DHCP and DNS WPAD ...
# set WPAD proxy location #
dhcp-option=252,"http://wpad/wpad.dat "

And I put it in the /etc/dnsmasq.d  as a file, so I can keep my main
conf file cleaner ...


P.S. Been using dnsmasq for better part of about 4 years and I think it kick's
a$$, thanks Simon. Wicked and easy to use daemon!
