    Having just upgraded from my billion router to a WRT54G I have just a couple of quick questions. I have searched, but oculdn't find anything about this.

    1. Is it possible and if so how do you set up the WRT54G so that it uses another machine on the local network for DNS lookup?

    2. If possible, how do you set up static hosts via the DHCP? ie: DHCP assigns specific IP addresses to specific MAC addresses. Similar to static IPs but done at the router's end.

    Thanks all,

    1. I don't think you can do this with the stock firmware, but you can definaetly do this with a dhcp config file via the console.

    2. You can do this as well but again you need to get custom firmware you can't do that with the stock Linksys firmware.

    Well I'm thinking of giving the talisman firmware a whirl, does anyone know how to achieve this with these firmwares? Or a console command or whateva?

    you should be able to do all that from the web interface if you install new firmware.
