Note: to obtain MAC addresses of the Mac machines (MAC != Mac, by the way), configure TCP/IP in System Preferences to obtain IP address using ‘BootP’. This usually allows the MAC address to show up in the DI-604UP section of the router setup page ( at page bottom under ‘Dynamic DHCP Client Lists’. Record the MAC address, then set up the Mac as a Static DHCP Client using that address and an unused IP address of your choice (192.168.1.XXX).
