Re: Mixing and Matching DHCP and static IPs

The safest way to fix an ip address in a dhcp served network is to tell
the dhcp server to associate that address with the mac of the unit.  The
address should be outside the dhcp range you set up.  I normall pin down
all my connected devices that way, leaving the dhcp assignment for
guests etc.  I've never seen a router which didn't support this.
