In all the routers I use, ALL have a config page to assign or reserve an IP for that machine.
DHCP is not "static" IP addressing but with address reservation it can help.
I currently have a small office network, 1 file server 2-3 desktop pcs and 3-4 laptop pcs, 4 network printers (wired)
I have 1+16 static IP addresses.
What I want to do is to be able to give to the laptops plus any extra laptops that I might need automaticaly generated IP address, or to be able to connect with my Iphone or samsung galaxy s iii phone without assigning a specific IP address.
As of now I can not do this.
What is the best setup or how to configure my router to allow this? If I configure it to randomly give the remaining static IP addresses it does not work. And I suppose I can not configure the pool to be from 192.168.1.2 - 20 eg.
