Openwrt, how to edit dnsmasq.conf file on router..

My router log constantly shows:

Tue Aug 23 13:27:47 2016 daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[1256]: DHCPINFORM(br-lan) 50:e5:49:ef:54:f2
Tue Aug 23 13:27:47 2016 daemon.info dnsmasq-dhcp[1256]: DHCPACK(br-lan) 50:e5:49:ef:54:f2 TiduZIB-PC

over and over every minute

I've discovered through browsing google that the fix to this is to put:
inside the dnsmasq.conf file which is a package included in openwrt.

I have no idea how to access this file to put the above line into it to fix the problem. This is apparently a problem related to windows update.. If I run windows update it says looking for updates, forever.

I'm using a netgear wndr3700v2 with OpenWrt Chaos Calmer 15.05.1

I have completely disabled the windows update service which didn't fix the issue.
