I'm running a LinkSys wireless router, WRT54GS, firmware v 4.70.6. I want to assign a static local IP address to a Linux machine I have running behind the router. Is there anything I need to do on the router configuration side? The local IP address of my router is192.168.1.1. My starting IP address in the router is 192.168.1.100 so I tried to assign an IP outside of that range to the Linux machine (192.168.1.99) using configuration commands on that machine. When I reconfigure my Linux machine, it no longer has internet connectivity and after verifying I had followed the right commands, my thoughts drifted to whether or not I need to configure anything on the router side.
Thanks, - Dave
