DHCP


The dhcp server on the router, distributes private ip's to any connected device. To make sure you get the same ip every time you log on, you can use "IP Reservation". If you can do that, then none of the set up described below needs to be done.
You will need to "fix" or reserve the ip unless your pc is the only attached device.

The router ip [192.168.1.1] and the pc ip [192.168.1.115] need to be out side the range of ip's the DHCP can allocate. Simply alter the start ip [shown in screen shot] to exclude them.
