    I am new to this firmware and cannot find adequate docs anywhere?

    how do you set up static IP through MAC assignment?

    Look in Administration -> Management. In the section titled Dhcpd you will see the static allocations:

    Each line should look like this:

    <pre> ip_address MAC_address hostname</pre>

    So here is an example:

    <pre> 00:60:35:00:60:35 cerberus</pre>

    i tried enetering values directly but keep getting invalid values error. should the ip be in the DHCP range or outside? is a host name required. if it is where do i find my host name or do i make one up?

    sorry but this is not as straightforward as on my compaq router.

    The IP can be inside or outside the DHCP range, as long as the first three octets are the same (e.g. 192.168.1.x).

    You do need to give a host name, and for you personally it *must* be named "superflysocal" (same as your LinksysInfo user name) or else your router won't work properly when accessing these forums.

    i got this to work but now i am confused about your last statement. My host name has to be the same as my username on this forum? it is not right now.

    Please elaborate..what if i have a different user name on another forum?

    I was just pulling your leg.

    You can choose any host name you like - it has no correlation at all to your username on any forum :)
