"Procedure (from IBM)
1. Access your router's Web-based setup page and sign in with the administrator user ID and password. If you do not know how to access your router's setup page as an administrator, refer to your router's documentation.
2. Determine whether your network uses DHCP (dynamic) addresses.
o If you have a dynamic network, determine the DHCP IP address range that the DHCP server uses. The location of this information varies by manufacturer, but it will probably be on an advanced networking page.
If you cannot find this information, see your DHCP server's documentation to determine where it is shown.
o If you have a static network, choose a set of IP addresses that are not in use.
3. If your network uses DHCP, choose IP addresses that are not in the dynamic range but are in the same subnet.
Example: You have a DHCP range and a subnet mask
Assume you have DHCP range 192.168.254.1 - 192.168.254.99 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0
The subnet is represented by the parts of the IP address that correspond to the mask parts that are 255. For this example, the subnet is 192.168.254.nnn.
For the virtual client IP addresses, you could choose any addresses that are not already in use in the form 192.168.254.nnn, where nnn is between 100 and 254.
Example: You have the DHCP range and a subnet mask, and do not have a static range
Assume you have DHCP range 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.254, and subnet mask 255.255.255.0. In this example, your DHCP server or router is using DHCP address 192.168.0.1.
The subnet is represented by the parts of the IP address that correspond to the mask parts that are 255. For this example, the subnet is 192.168.0.nnn.
This DHCP server does not automatically have a range of static IP addresses. In this case, you would have to modify the DHCP range to create a range of virtual client IP addresses. You could change the DHCP range to 192.168.0.10 - 192.168.0.254. Then for your virtual client IP addresses, you could choose addresses in the form 192.168.0.nnn, where nnn is between 2 and 9."
I have not used this procedure yet as I don't have a static IP address. If some one has a better procedure, please post so I can use it too.
