How can i set my OpenWrt 10.03 router to not to use instead, use a /32 mask, so every client, that gets an ip from the DHCP server just can't sniff the network traffic - it would be a great security feature to safely use e.g.: FTP!

On the wireless side this is done with WPA settings. On the wired side, I think you would need to set up a VLAN per port. Then you can setup a /30 or /28 for each port. /32 addresses are point to point, and I don't think you they will work with DHCP.

How about going to LuCI administration->network->DHCP->additional filed->IPv4 netmask->add?

There you should be able to set up the netmask. I think that the correct setting should be Please do report results!
