Let me clear that up a bit. I use DHCP and have my "normal" Machines with Set IP outside the DHCP range, to avoid addressing conflicts and to be able to work as a web server. (requires set IP) - When setting up a Network Printer you need to either give it a set IP (windows crap) so you can find it after IP lease runs out and it is give a new IP. Or need to be able to set up IP finding using MAC address. The CISCO router can do all this for me, except with the server issue but thats just not possible in any other config regardless of Hardware/Software.
