[Dnsmasq-discuss] How to provide DHCP for WiFi hotspot?

I am running dnsmasq on my xubuntu 21.04 laptop, I haven't changed the
configuration from default at all yet.

I have a WiFi hotspot configuration that brings up the WiFi as a
server with IP confuguration:-
    inet  netmask  broadcast

Do I just need to add a DHCP range line such as:-


to /etc/dnsmasq.conf to get IP addresses for systems that connect to
the WiFi hotspot or is there more needed?
