    how do i assign static ip to differnt devices on here. was able to on my netgear and dlinks that let me clone the devices MAC id and assign an IP. how can i do this on hte wrt54g?i dont see any LAN settings at all.thanks

    EDIT:

    or are you supposed to STATIC IP it on the device it self (ps3, nas, pc etC.) and the router will detect it?

    so theres no manual settings to assign a mac id to a specific IP. its all done on the device and not router. right?

    I don't believe it supports "reservations" with default Linksys firmware. However...depending on which version you have..flashing with some better 3rd party firmware will give you that feature. DD-WRT, Hyper-WRT, Tomato, etc.

    Well, I didn't do it on your particular router, but I would suggest reading it completely, keeping a copy of the steps locally (printed or on file), and always remember - it might brick the router. Other than that........my flash worked fine. DD-WRT has a ton of options. Only, in the directions I used, there was a syntax error in one of the commands, so a little linux experience helped me through it.

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php?title=DD-WRT_Docu_(EN) even has a few guides with steps you can take to possibly revive a bricked router after a bad flash.

    No guarantees of course, but when I flashed a router for the first time I was glad to read-up and have some kind of safety net.
