The router really has nothing to do with using static addresses.
Static addresses are configured on the client-side.  It's just like
ethernet; all you have to do is configure each computer you have with
a different address and turn off dhcp on the router.  Dhcp is kind of
like an extension of a router's basic functioning -- any real router
or access point should be able to handle static addressing.  Now, if
you are talking about assigning certain computers static IP addresses
based on their MAC addresses from the router configuration utility, I
wish you luck in figuring that one out.  I wouldn't worry about it
though.  I mean, whether dynamic or static, a router should be able to
perform its basic function of routing based on IP addresses.
