[Chilli] Coova when no wan

The problem with there being no WAN is that DNS will not work. Without
DNS, you do not get a redirect since the browser times out before making
any HTTP request. However, what you can do is use option
--domaindnslocal to instruct CoovaChilli to return a 'local' IP for any
DNS request under the --domain (so, if you have domain=lan, then
hostname.lan would resolve in chilli to a local IP). Typically, DNS
systems will attempt the original hostname, then the hostname under the
DHCP domain, searching for a result.
