    I setup my WRV200 to have a DHCP range of 1.

    Now, I setup my 4 SSIDs. What happens when a computer uses the key and accesses the SSID1. Will it get an IP address, or will it work so long as I set the PC to have a static IP address?

    Do I need to add it to the static IP list in the router?

    you really only need a static IP on any device you are port forwarding too, or if you have any type of Server on the lan. you say you have a DHCP range of 1, but 4 SSIDs, so does this mean you have 4 devices that will use the 4 SSIDs? if so you will need more than one DHCP range if you want more than 1 device on the LAN at the same time or if the devices have different mac addresses since DCHP lease on a mac address is usually defaulted to 24Hrs.
