Specs: Windows XP
I have a Belkin F5D8236.4 v1 router, I also have two netgear network switches for cameras and to connect the Wii and Sumsung HTBD1250 Blue-ray streaming. Just last night, I added a Roku Streaming connection for the upstair's TV. As I add these devices and or clients, the Router has gliches or interferences. When this happens, the cameras and the Roku are looking for the "way back home" to the router. The router reassigns a ew address, the client then looks for the gateway, the router rejects the signal, the client hasto be reset. Can I assign these devices or clients a permanant IP address?

Yes. Go into your Router and find the DHCP settings. Then limit the Range so you have some addresses you could use as static. Depending on how many you have lets just assume 100 then set your range to 1-153. (Assuming you are on an 255.255.255.0 network) That will allow you to use address 154-254 for static address.

Then you can configure the clients with these as static. Make sure you also put in your other info like the Subnet Mask and Default Gateway, which I do no know what it is. Maybe if you post an IPCONFIG /ALL from one of your computers we could be more specific in the instructions. Don't forget that if you want to access the cameras through the internet you will need to portforward those static address in your router's firewall.

Ok, so I change the upper and lower limits, how does this set the IP for each item on the network?

It does not you have to do it manually. Every camera is different so I do not know how to configure them. You will have to consult your user manual on how to configure an IP for the camera. You would start with 192.168.1.154 and do each camera until you have them all setup. If you tell us what the instructions say for the camera or give us the model number we might be able to Google the instructions.
