    I don't turn off my router but after a while it re-assign diffrent DHCP addreses to same computer. (computer being on and off over time)
    WRT54GL official firmware 4.30.0.

    I am surprised such advanced router don't do that! :(

    Is there any way to force it reserve an IP address for MAC address?
    Or I need to risk and install something like DD-WRT?

    The Linksys firmware doesn't support that.

    You can try HyperWRT - Tofu 11x which does that plus more and is based off the Linksys firmware.

    Go into static dhcp on the router setup and assign an ip to the mac in question.
