    How can I assign static IP to computers on my LAN based on their MAC addresses? I have the Linksys WRT54G Version 4 router, and upgraded to the latest linksys firmware out there. Thanks.

    For that, you'd need aftermarket firmware. DD-WRT or HyperWRT.

    I'm biased toward HyperWRT, only because it has all the features I've ever needed, and is very close to the original firmware. If you want to go HyperWRT, I'd recommend HyperWRT Thibor.

    If you choose Thibor, You'll have to do the upgrade in two flashes, because your WRT54G cannot take Thibor (which is a SpeedBooster build) directly. Linksys has a signature checker that prevents the "G" from loading "GS" firmware, and Thibor will turn your router into a WRT54GS.

    1. Do a factory reset on your router.
    2. Load HyperWRT Tofu 13c ( http://www.polarcloud.com/tofu/ )
    3. Reboot the router.
    4. Load HyperWRT Thibor 14 ( http://www.thibor.co.uk/ ) - you don't need the GSV4 edition, just the regular one.
    5. Reboot the router.
    6. Go into "Administration" / "Factory Reset" and select the "Clear NVRAM" option, and reset the router to factory defaults in Thibor.
    7. Rekey your configuration settings.

    Tarifa b019

    Static DHCP based on MAC addres is also available in the Tarifa firmware.

    If you like a full list of the features: http://members.chello.nl/j.huitema2/WRT54G/

    The Tarifa b019 can be directly loaded into your WRT54G.

    In the download section is Tarifa b009 available, this version has static dhcp too.
