I don't have this router, I have a WRT150N but I DLed the manual and the 
interface looks similar.

Once logged into the web interface see if you can go to the "Status" tab 
and look for a sub tab (or link) that says "Local Network" on that page, 
mine has a button for "DHCP Client Table" that gives the list.

You should write them down obviously.  But you may also want to reserve 
IPs for particular devices.  In my router that is on the "Setup" | Basic 
Setup tabs, and there is a button for DHCP Reservation. 

Actually, now that I look, the DHCP Reservation page has all of the 
connected  devices  listed as well.  So to reserve them, you can just 
check the box.
