    Right, I have set up this router almost spot on for our raping bandwidth student house. I have set up a firewall to block all ports on all IP's (except mine ;) ) with the exception of specific ones such as msn and the html ports. This runs flawlessly, except when my pc is occasionally off the IP's change :( and some other pc takes over my IP. How can I stop this from happening? What I would really like to do is assign each persons MAC address to an IP. Is this possible?

    Could always just use a static IP for your PC instead of DHCP..

    Trouble with that is I have to ask 8 people to set their pc's up or i do it for them which is time consuming and they gonna ask questions. I ll give this LAN setup a go tonight.

    Or assign yourself an IP outside the DHCP pool that won't get taken by anybody else?

    I meant just give your PC a static IP and leave the rest on DHCP.. ;)
