    Why bother with static DHCP ? Unless the computer travels between various different networks on a regular basis (like a laptop), then Static Ip assignment on the computer is what you need. Static IP is gold. It never changes, and does not need to. Enter the Static IP into the DMZ field of the router and you are finished. Be sure to use a Static IP that is outside the range of your DHCP server.

    The router has 2 addresses of it's own, one is the WAN address that is given to you by the ISP by DHCP. The other is the LAN address which is the one you will be dealing with. By default the LAN IP of the router is and the DHCP server in the router assigns addresses to your computers within the range of - or some fraction of that range. I am not running the exact same firmware that you are, but you should be able to log into the router and find the DHCP server range. The range is actually programmable. You can change the range to something like - and this will leave the addresses - available to be statically assigned to the computer or other LAN devices. For example, you could use for the computer and put into the DMZ zone field in the router. Are you familiar with how to set a static IP in the computer ?

    I have access to a radio programmed with HyperWrt, so I can give you exact steps. Unfortunatley it will be several hours before I will be able to get into it. Hopefully somebody will give you a hand inthe mean time. If not, I'll give you some very specific instructions later this evening.

    CST here too, so I'm posting now at 7:51 Pm, with about 5 minutes worth of typing. Shame nobody else could help you out. I'll number the steps so if you hit a snag, we can refer to the step number.

    1 - Log into the router by entering into the browser address bar. Default username is admin, password is either admin or has no password, I cannot remember which.

    2 - You should be on the basic setup screen. On this page you should see the DHCP server with a dot in the selection circle. The DHCP address will be 192.168.1.( ). Put 100 in the box at the end of 192.168.1. and then just below enter 100 for Max # of users. Save.

    3 - If you are still logged into the router, click on "Applications and Gaming". You will see the "DMZ" option appear in the menu bar. Click on "DMZ". On that page, put a select dot in the circle in in front of the "Enable", and then put 75 in the box at the end of 192.168.1.( ). Save. The DMZ address is now

    4 - Close the browser on your computer. Click Start - Control Panel. In the upper left part of the control pane, you shuld see the option to "Switch to classic view". Click It. If it already says "Switch to category view" then you are already in classic view. Open the Icon that says "Network Connections". Locate the Icon that represents the local area network.

    5 - Right click on the "Local Area Network" icon and select "Properties". This opens a new window with different options with check marks in them. The last one should be "Internet Protocol [TCP/IP]". Click on it once to highlight it, then click on the "Properties" button.

    6 - Select the option "Use the following IP address". Fill in these numbers ;
    IP Address =
    Subnet Mask =
    Default Gateway =

    Now select "Use the following DNS server".
    First number put
    Second number put

    Click "OK" to close that window.
    Clock "Ok" to close the next window.
    Close all windows, and see if your internet still works. If it does, you are finished. If not, go back and change both options to "Obtain Automatically, and post back.

    Looks like the poor feller fat fingered some IP settings, and is still on hold with HP to figure out how to get back to the properties page.
