You can make sure that it gets the same DHCP assigned IP address every time by configuring your router to assign the same IP to its MAC address.

Well Richard, i have setup more secure network locally with static IP adresses, due to the here combination of the DSL+WI-FI+Wi-Fi Extender+Wi-Fi repeater. 6700 with PC behind Wi-Fi Extender(without DHCP service),in this case i need to recombine of the network structure

I have a similar configuration and use DHCP that only assigns leases to known MAC addresses this includes too many computers to stay sane, gaming Devices, NAS, Printers, 2 Wireless Access Points and, external webcams and all the mobile devices that are within the household (or visit). I found it much easier to lock things down this way rather than configure static IP's on every device. That soon becomes unmanageable for me - I would rather play radio! :-)

Just to clarify though, I am doing this through Microsoft Windows 2008 Server DHCP as it allows a managed MAC list - I don't personally know of any Routers that allow DHCP to known MAC only. But other people may.

i use a MAC OS(non server) with VMware and Win7(non server) for Radio, i see necessary a bit scripting on MAC to start with DHCP demon, I'll report
