    So I just replaced my Netgear router with a Linksys WRT54GL at home.
    In netgear there is an address reservation function in which you can
    assign a static IP to each computer using their MAC addresses. Can you
    do that with WRT54GL? I have browsed through the admin interface and
    can't find any. If not, is there any 3rd party firmware that does
    that? I want to have static ip for each computer for port forwarding
    purpose.

    My WRT54GL has the linksys firmware version 4.30.2. Thanks in advance.

    I'll assume you know that static IP(s) are those IP(s) that cannot be
    issued by the DHCP server on the router.

    If the DHCP Issue Count is 10, then IP(s) 192.168.1.100 through
    192.168.1.110 are the DHCP IP(s). 192.168.1.111 to 254 are static IP(s),
    along with 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99.

  3. YOu're correct. The stock Linksys firmware does not support "static
    DHCP", "reserved DHCP", "reserved leases", "Pre-assigned DHCP", or
    whatever it's called this week.
    DD-WRT and the other alternative firmware such as OpenWRT all support
    static DHCP.

    DD-WRT:
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Static_DHCP
    (when their wiki SQL server recovers from an apparent trashout).

    OpenWRT:

    [A] Ask everyone to count to ten. The programmer
    will start with zero. Everyone else will start with one.

    [Q] How many fingers on both hands?
    [A] Eleven. Counting from the little finger, it's
    10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 and 5 more makes 11.
