DHCP Reservations - I've heard about this, but for some reason I've never really understood it. I start to read up on it and am immediately confused. RR - I'm pretty green in the area of routing/networking, too. Only really recently "dug in" to it when I started getting my receivers all networked. Static IPs are assigned at the DEVICE level, not at the router level. For instance, you set the static IP for a sat receiver via the receiver's menu on the Advanced Networking menu page. I'm still not sure I want to even attempt to get into the WCCK's setup page. I'm kinda thinking I'll just leave well enough alone! It might be fun to try as a weekend project, though. *just saw your reply. Sounds like you don't have any green on you!
