I need to allow a certain group of computers unfiltered internet access. The easiest way for me to do this would be to assign these computers to a specific IP range. I can then allow any computers in that range to bypass our filtering policy. The problem is that I don' t see a way to assign these computers to a specific range via DHCP.

I am looking for an alternative to manual interventions such as IP reservations or setting static IPs. Also I want this to be as easy and maintenance free as possible so I don't want to do anything with VLANS, etc.

I am starting to believe it is not possible to assign a specific computer to an IP range via DHCP, GP, etc. We are running Server 2008 Standard.
