Windows XP Home network - need to fix IP addresses

I need to fix IP addresses for easier network sharing/mapping. I have 2 laptops and a desktop connecting wirelessly to a Netgear DG834PN modem/router. I also have a desktop PC connected via ethernet cable to this router. I'd like the hard-wired desktop  to have 192.168.0.10 and the other 3 to have .11  .12  and .13 respectively. Changing the tcp/ip properties to this manually, entering the existing subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and default gateway of 192.168.0.1 only drops my internet connection, where am I going wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Ah, it's because it wants to hand out other IP addresses then?  Is a reboot usually required or do these things work automatically as I need to do this on mission-critical machines?

Excellent thanks, just done it. For reference:
Netgear router login, LAN IP setup, address reservation.

Cheers guys

you don't need to reboot to get the new IP addresses out - you can do an:
c:\ipconfig /release
c:\ipconfig /renew

on the hosts that you've setup.
