I don't think linksys router' support dhcp reservation. Your workout could be to change the dhcp scope to leave out the two ip address you want to use.

For example change the range to 192.168.1.20 - 192.168.1.254.

Then assign you laptops a static ip address outside that range.

It may also be possible that the router IP has been changed from 192.168.1.1 to something else.
Open CMD and type ipconfig. Make a note of the Gateway Address and that should be the IP of the router.

The router can be set back to its factory default settings manually by pressing and holding its Reset button for 30 seconds.  Then you can use the 192.168.1.1 to access the router page.

@Soulja:
Looks like reoroman is trying to get same IP every time from the router and not preferring to assign the IP manually to the NIC. If he takes your route, he will have to hardcore the IP to the NIC and if he takes the machine to any other location, he may have to keep switching between "obtain IP automatically" and "Use the following"

Yes that is true. If the router does have a reservation feature, it is definitely the way to go in this case. I am assuming it doesn't.
