The stock Linksys firmware does not allow for assigning static IP address via the router's DHCP server. If using the stock Linksys firmware the only way around it is do what toomanydonuts suggested in his/her post and assign the static IP (if possible) on the device itself rather than trying to use the router.
The other workaround to this issue with the stock Linksys Firmware is to install 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT on the WRT54G2. Note usually installing 3rd party firmware voids the router's warrantee. The DD-WRT firmware has the option to create static IP addresses through the router's DHCP server. However, the use of DD-WRT may cause problems with your WRT54G2 router. For some of us who tried DD-WRT on our WRT54G2 V1 routers the wireless speed would routinely dropping down to 1 Mps and stay there no matter what Wireless TX settings were used.
