Except (a), the router _is_ the client if he's talking about static
addresses from his ISP, in which case I've never met a router that doesn't
handle that; and (b) it's a darn sight simpler to configure the router's
DHCP to deliver fixed addresses than to turn it off and configure every
client (where "every" is more than 1) with static IPs.
