    I'm advised I should be able to assign a fixed IP address such as 192.168.1 109 to the hardware MAC address for the interface card of a device I have connected to my WRT54G.

    Can this be done, and what WRT54G management page options do I need to use?

    What version WRT54G ?- I do not think "static dhcp" is available in stock Linksys firmware

    Firmware version v2.02.7, according to the WRT54G's management page.

    He didn't mean firmware version, actually. He meant hardware revision. If you look on the bottom of your router, there should be a sticker that says WRT54G and than the revision number. Mine says WRT54Gv2.

    If yours is newer than version 4, you're probably out of luck as far as alternative firmware is concerned. There is DD-WRT Micro, but I don't know much about it.

    Well that suggests its an old hardware/firmware and you have plenty of options with 3rd party firmware, any of which have static dhcp as far as I know

    Release Date:           3/17/2004
    Last Firmware Version: 2.02.7
    To be sure which version hardware you need to check the serial No.

    Hyperwrt Thibor sticks close to the Linkys GUI
    Tomato uses similar codebase with a new GUI
    dd-wrt changes both and adds lots of extra features
