Thanks.  I just did this on the router under LAN Setup / Address Reservation.
Along the way I was reminded why it took me so long.  A member of this
household had changed the router password and then lost it.  If this group
has the ability to tell me where that scrap of paper is, I'd rather not know
about it.  So we looked harder and eventually found it ourselves, thus
avoiding the need to reset all router settings to defaults.

Thanks again.
