    Can you reserve IP addresses for certain machines on the network on a WAG200G

    So everytime a PC connects, it gets the same IP address?

    Not used that specific device but most give you the ability to do it via mac

    yeah, I had that feature on my old (now dead) Netgear DG834 - but can't for the life of me find it on the WAG200G

    I did some searching and cant find anything either. Perhaps someone that owns one will chime in with an answer.

    You have to install an unofficial firmware from Woytekm for WAG200G :

    See :

    0 - Use only the english langage
    1 - You must enable automounting of the filesystem from the "MySetup" webpage of the router. And then reboot.
    2 - Open ssh or telnet to the router, log in, and issue a "make_mtd5" command. And reboot.
    3- Now you can use the GUI to enter MAC address <=> IP.
    The GUI will create the /mnt/mtd5/udhcpd.statics file automaticaly.

    I had been looking at that today - just wasn't sure of the benifits/difference between the official and modified firmwares

    Is it easy enough to revert back to the offical firmware?

    ifican - thanks for all your help :)

    *edit

    installed the firmware, for the automounting did you mean enable "mount /dev/mtdblock/5" in the "other" section?
    I'm now stuck on the password for telnet/ssh entry via putty - I've tried using the same as the WWW interface, but access is always denied :s

    >>Is it easy enough to revert back to the offical firmware?
    Yes, very easy. Just unmount the /dev/mtdblock/5 before and reboot.

    >>for the automounting did you mean
    >>enable "mount /dev/mtdblock/5" in the "other" section?
    Yes.

    >>I'm now stuck on the password for telnet/ssh entry via putty - I've tried

    Use "root" as login. It's not "admin" as in the WWW interface.

    Enjoy :)

    ive tried root and the username but what is the password??
    ive tried the password it was set to in the web interface as well as admin, root, password, pass....

    that's strange - root is the one that worked for me

    try downloading "putty" to log in via ssh
    go to the webpage, change and save your password again, even if its the same one.
    reboot the router
    then use putty to ssh log in using root as the username and your webadmin password

    I've done this using the official firmware. You just have to set up the TCP/IP settings correctly on the machine you want to have a fixed IP address:

    Code:
    [b]Configure IPv4:[/b] Manually (rather than DHCP)
    [b]IPv4 Address:[/b] 192.168.1.[i]custom-number[/i]
    [b]Subnet Mask:[/b] 255.255.255.0
    [b]Router:[/b] 192.168.1.1
    [b]DNS:[/b] 192.168.1.1
    I have my router distribute IP addresses via DHCP from 100 upwards and my custom ones are below 100.

    Sure, but this is not static DHCP...
