Setting up Static IP Reservations on the Linksys WRT32X

The Linksys WRT32X AC3200 Dual-Band Wi-Fi Gaming Router with Killer Prioritization Engine creates the best home routing solution for serious online gaming.  It is built on an enterprise-grade hardware platform delivering the fastest wired and wireless speeds.
Static IP reservation is required if you want to reserve an IP address for use of a specific device on your network, effectively ensuring that the router does not assign the IP address to other devices in the network.  This is helpful when managing multiple devices and for Port Forwarding rules.
