    DHCP does not assign a static IP. There are some DHCP servers (routers) that can "reserve" a DHCP IP for a specific machine, but that varies by the DHCP server. Best to simple edit the PC's network properties, and set the IP address manually, to an IP that is outside the DHCP pool range, and use the same netmask, gateway and DNS that all the other DHCP users get when they get a dynamic Ip from DHCP server.

    I have no idea about setup a static ip address using DHCP . In my experience, static ip address can be assigned by an ISP . So, you can request your ISP to assign statiic ip address for your pc or mobile . After that, you can check your new ip address by using the site http://www.ip-details.com/

    You want to access the network adapters. On windows vista-8: go to network and sharing center and then change adapter settings. Right click on the specific adapter in use (Ethernet or Wifi) and select Internet Protocol Version 4 and then properties. There you can set the IP address that it will always use.

    Add the MAC address of the computer to the DHCP client table with a static address, instead of just making it part of a pool. Simple, at least in Linux dhcpd. That's our normal mode of operation. But you have to do it on the DHCP server, not the client. If your DHCP server is built-in to a cheap router and doesn't offer any configuration options, you may have to upgrade.
