WRT54G V3 Firmware supporting BOTH WPA2 and Static DHCP?

    I'm new to the whole wireless world and to the WRT54G router specifically. I've searched these forums and the web for the answer to this, but haven't found one yet, so here's my question.

    Is there any official or 3rd party firmware for the WRT54G v.3 router that provide both WPA2 and Static DHCP? The latest official firmware supports WPA2 but not Static DHCP, and I've tried DD-WRT v22 pre5, which provides static DHCP but not WPA2. I've tried to figure out what Alchemy supports, and it looks like it is the same as DD-WRT right now.

    It looks like once v23 of DD-WRT is released that I'll get what I want, but it would be nice to know what other options there are.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    That's how I'm running now, but not my preferred method. Plus, this means I have to have an alternate configuration for my notebook for both the ethernet adapter and the wireless adapter, and wait for the timeout before being able to use the network. And if I ever need to connect to another network that does not use DHCP...

    Or I could use DHCP, lookup the IP address it is assigned and edit the routers port forward table with the new address every time I want to use SSH tunnelling. BLEH!

    No, I would like BOTH features if I can get them.
