    Can this be done?

    Linksys WRT54G v2 & Linksys WRT54G v1 both running DD-WRT v23 in WDS; 64bit WEP enabled (until I get Linux & WPA happy)

    The link that was already posted in this thread leads to an article on Static DHCP. Among the content of that web page is the following:


    In DD-WRT v23:

    To assign the IP address and the hostname "mypc" to a PC with a network card having the MAC address 00:AE:0D:FF:BE:56 you should press Add then enter 00:AE:0D:FF:BE:56 into the MAC field, mypc into the HOST field and into the IP field.

    After each entry press Save Settings (at the bottom of the Services page).

    To add an additional entry, press Add again.

    Hope this helps...

    I've tried to follow the instructions provided through the link, but I receive an error stating, "Not a valid mac address". I'm sure I'm using the correct MAC address. I've taken it directly from looking at the LAN client list under the Status tab. Any ideas?

    Make sure you are formatting your MAC correctly

    common mistakes:

    using "O" (letter O) instead of "0" (Zero)
    using spaces instead of ":"
