    you assign it manually through PC's Networking LAN properties, put the same IP in your port forwarding.

    Also, make sure that the static IP address you assign is OUTSIDE the range of the DHCP server address pool of the router, but still in the same subnet, keep the first three parts of the IP address the same.

    ex: 192.168.1.x where x is the variable.

    okay, i will help you out, what you want to do is assign a static ip to the computer that connects wirelessly. To do this

    1.start > run > cmd
    2. In the command prompt, type Ipconfig /all
    3. Right Click and click "select all"
    4. Hit enter, and paste it in here. I will help you further after that.

    You first need to determine what the DHCP server address pool range is. That's available logging into the web based setup of the router. I believe the WRT54G starts at 192.168.1.2 for the Default DHCP range, so if you use 192.168.1.201 or higher, you should be fine.

    In that case, you can configure any static IP addressed machines as follows.

    IP Address . . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.(2 to 99) <- anywhere in that range
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1, 68.87.74.162

    To get to where you enter those numbers that JohnWill gave you, right click on your LAN, click properties. Next go to TCP/IP Properties, and enter the numbers as follows.

    Somewhat off-topic, but is this really necessary? I use static IP's within my network and I've never had IP conflicts as a result of using IP's within the address pool. :eek:

    Guillermojm, make sure every number is correct. If one of them is incorrect, it wont work properly :)

    As amazing as it seems, this is a recipe for IP conflicts. It will frequently happen if the device with the static IP address is off, and the address gets automatically assigned, then you turn on the device with the static IP address.

    To answer the question, yes it is necessary if you don't want problems down the road.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
