[Dnsmasq-discuss] Suppressing default route & DNS server options

I've been trying a number of things to keep dnsmasq from sending the
DHCP options for default route and DNS server. I'm using an OpenWRT
router as a DHCP server & wireless bridge for a small standalone
network of computers (3-4 systems set up to run a shared MS Access
database, web viewer, etc for a dog show scoring setup). It works like
a champ, except that when the site has wireless Internet access and
the systems are attached via wired network to the router. In this case
the default route and DNS settings interfere with Internet access on
the hosts. I can manually override the routes on the hosts, but I'd
much rather stay hands off.
I've tried using "-O 3, -O 6," to suppress; this works OK on my MacOS
& XP boxes, but MS Vista appears to reject the DHCP as invalid (you
get an error on an "ipconfig /renew" and never get an address), and it
seemed to confuse the heck out of my network-enabled Brother printer.
Is there another way to do this that may work better? Best would be to
just have it not emit those options at all I think.
This is dnsmasq 2.47 as included in OpenWRT Kamikaze (8.09.1, r16278).
Thank you for any recommendations, and my apologies if this is a FAQ.
I've been poking around a lot and haven't seen this directly addressed
that I could find.
