I want to assign static IP addresses to a file server and two printers but can't find the option to do this on the Linksys. I'm sure that it must be there..somewhere...but darned if i can find that option.

Check the MAC Adresses of the ethernet cards and printer and assign a reservation in the dhcp server options of the linksys.

Or, adjust the scope of the dhcp server (example 192.168.1.100-254)
and then assign the other machines 192.168.1.(2-99)
use the default mask of 255.255.255.0
assign the default gateway (should be the linksys internal ip) and you should be good to go

The router does not assign static IP addresses.  A select number of routers will reserve specific IP addresses to assign by DHCP to specific computers but I don't think yours is one of them.  

Do as stevenlewis suggests above manually assigning IP addresses on the printers/computer themselves.

Jeepers...what a pain this is turning out to be.

Swinging stuff over from one network based on 192.168.0.x to that dictated by the damn Linksys to be 192.168.1.x is not as easy as it should be. Particularly when it's a mixed Mac and PC environment and pernickety printer drivers!  Guess in hindsight should have stuck with a DLink since that was the product range for the earlier satellite DSL based network.

That'll teach me to want to play with a different manufacturers kit :-(

You could have changed the linksys to 192.168.0.x (and left everything else the way it was)

I did think about that and saw that I could change what they called the local IP address.  But then I also saw in the panel below that 192.168.1 was in bold and not changeable...and so I bottled out.  I guess you're telling that the IP address in bold simply reflects what was entered into the field called local IP address?
