    A Google search should find you a dozen howtos.
    Here's a quick one:
    - login to your router console
    - applications & Gaming
    you should see the following fields to fill in:
    ==Customized Applications - Enter the name of the public service or other Internet application in the field provided.
    ==External Port - Enter the numbers of the External Ports (the port numbers seen by users on the Internet).
    ==TCP Protocol - Click this checkbox if the application requires TCP.
    ==UDP Protocol - Click this checkbox if the application requires UDP.
    ==IP Address - Enter the IP Address of the PC running the application. (you would most likely need static addressing on that pc)
    ==Enable - Click the Enable checkbox to enable port forwarding for the application.

    What do you mean by a reserved IP address?
    To set a static IP addressing on your pc, you just go to the network adapter, tcp/ip settings, and enter the static ip address you want to use.

    The other alternative is to download a non-Linksys firmware such as ddwrt that allows you to use static addressing with DHCP.

    I mean set my router up so that it always gives me the same IP address all the time. Iv heard that the way to do that is by setting your router up with you MAC address and then telling to give you a spacific IP address. But I dont know where that is in the softwear, I found something that I think is it under "Access Restrictions."

    Could you be more spacific on where those settings might be in my network adapter?

    This last is called "static DHCP", and is not available in stock Linksys firmware. You will need to go to third-party firmwares to get that feature.

    Uh, is there some reason you want static DHCP rather than simply setting a static IP address on your computer?
