The dhcp client in openwrt is called udhcpc (pretty sure this is part
of busybox). You should be able to use the uci configuration system
to configure that interface. Are you sure it isn't doing some pppoe
Look in /etc/config/network and /etc/config/dhcp for examples of
normal interface configuration. Look here for the uci network
Be aware that OpenWrt adds a layer of interface naming (e.g. lan or
wan or ???) on top of the linux interface names (eth0, wlan0, etc).
You could have a stanza called "config interface wimax" and add the
linux interface name as an option under that: "option ifname 'ppp0'"
or whatever. Also, I'd suggest to try it in a linux laptop and see
how the laptop configures it.
