Setting up static IP addresses - How do I

I have a Netgear WNR2200 and I want to set static IP addresses to my devices but I've forgotten how I did it before.

Connected devices;
Kubuntu Desktop
Peppermint Desktop
Win7 Lappy
HP Offiejet 4630
HP Deskjet 3070A
Kubuntu 14.04LTS (64bit) | M5A78LM-USB | Netgear N300 WNR2200

Re: Setting up static IP addresses - How do I

Static ip addresses are set at the device itself. What you need to do is decrease the size of the DHCP server's lease pool (the range of addresses it can issue), and then go to each device and set it to an address outside of the server's lease pool. Were you thinking of DHCP reservations - where you tell the router to always give a particular device, a particular address?
