It seems like your modem will always try to use the same IP. Usually you 
can make sure it stays like this via the web interface, so you have to 
look for something where you can specify the IP address allocated to a 
specific MAC address[1].

If you really can't find your way through the web-interface you could 
post some screenshots somewhere on the net, but be careful to obfuscate 
any information you don't want to make public.

given network device

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
