    I would like to assign a static address to a replay I use for internet sharing. Is this possible with this model router?
    I have the random ip assiged for port forwarding, but the router keeps changing the address of the replay. I have about 10 pcs on this network and only need this one device to have a static assigned address. I see the following in my setup, can set it
    up here?

    DHCP Server: Enable Disable
    Starting IP Address: 192.168.1.
    Maximum Number of DHCP Users:
    Client Lease Time: minutes (0 means one day)
    Static DNS 1: . . .
    Static DNS 2: . . .
    Static DNS 3: . . .
    WINS: . . .

    It seems like you are running the stock firmware that came with your GL. Upgrade to Tomato, HyperWRT, DD-WRT, or just about ANY of the 3rd party firmware, and look for Static DHCP. You'll also find a bunch of other goodies in the 3rd party firmware that's not in the Linksys firmware.

    BTW, you chose well in getting a GL...
