I have assigned a Static IP with other Linksys/Cisco wireless routers (WRT54G), but I can't seem to get the E4200 to assign a Static IP. My device is connected to Port 3, with that being the only port (besides my WAN) being occupied. Here is my process.
Go to http://192.168.1.1
Route Entries: 1 ( )
Enter Route Name: Ooma
Destination LAN IP: 192.168.1.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Interface: LAN & Wireless
When I enter the following and click Save Settings I get the following error: "Invalid Static Route!"
I don't understand what I am doing wrong. This is the exact same as I have done on my WRT54G and it worked.
Does anybody have any clues or suggestions?

Haha! Oh man! Late nights just aren't good. I realized my error in the morning. I had previous used the Advanced Routing Static IP to route a Static IP to a another router a while back.
I was trying to assign a specific Static IP address to my Ooma Telo phone that is behind my E4200. I had thought that the Advanced Routing was how to do it. Not so.
I realized, in the morning, that the feature to assign a specific Static IP address with DHCP is in Setup>Basic Setup under DHCP Server Setting. It's called DHCP Reservation. There I was able to assign the Static IP I wanted for my Ooma and all is fine.
Sorry the hassle. But thank you for helping!
