The best way to set up static IPs is to put in DHCP reservations (static
assignments in the DHCP server).  Then you can leave all the PCs as they
are and just change the modem configuration to set their IPs.

In the G604T manual i have, page 42 shows the Home -> DHCP screen with a
few slots for static assignments.  Put in your computer's MAC address
along with the desired IP address, and save the config.  Then try
unplugging and plugging in your LAN cable again and it should get the
static IP you've selected.
