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.
