    How do I do that? From within the router's menu?

    Yes, but exactly where or if it can be done varies from model to model. You'll have to work through the menus yourself to see if it does have those capabilities.

    I think I found it.
    So, I just have to make the lease permanent, right? Does this suppose some security issue or something? I mean, making it permanent?

    Another possibility is to edit the Network Connection and assign one computer a fixed IP address of 192.168 ... X; and the other a fixed IP address of 192.168 ... Y

    And how do you do it from the Network Connection?

    Dash->Network Connections->Edit Wired Connection->Method->Manual

    You can also edit /etc/network/interfaces directly.

    So, from Network Connection I edit the wire or wireless and then go to IPv4 and IPv6 Settings and change them to manual. Then I have to add an Adress Netmask and Gateway. hmmm... is that right?

    Yes. The end result is that you will have something like the following in /etc/network/interfaces

    Code:
    iface eth0 inet static
       address 192.168.222.24
       broadcast 192.168.222.255
       netmask 255.255.255.0
       gateway 192.168.222.1
    Of course you want the values to match what you are using on your own network.

    You're welcome.

    As an afterthought, you might want to make the fixed IP numbers outside the range doled out by DHCP. That way you can avoid even the possibility of a collision.
