comment Static DHCP / DHCP Reservation on D-Link WBR-1310 rev B?
Found my way around to D-Link's emulator page for this router. support.dlink.com/emulators/wbr1310_revB/202/lan.htm Looks like you're right. I can't find DHCP reservation settings anywhere either. If custom firmware is not a desirable option, consider getting a new router. Most modern routers support this feature. Every Linksys router I've had in the past few years does.

Without doing my own digging on the make/model just yet, I'd bet @DarthAndroid has it right. Though DHCP Reservation is by far not a new concept, not all SOHO routers (and, especially not older routers) have the feature available in stock firmware.

comment Static DHCP / DHCP Reservation on D-Link WBR-1310 rev B?
@VBwhatnow The OP first said it's "for a few devices", then mentioned his printer as an example. I wouldn't be surprised if the other devices include a laptop or something equally as mobile. In any case, the user specifically asked for how to use DHCP to enforce "static" IPs. Your answer does not address that. Besides, if you were assuming that this was only for a printer, why did you include Windows instructions?

@LiuYan刘研 But after you take ownership, you should be able to edit all permissions.

Any particular reason you're using Telnet? Why not RDP?

comment Static DHCP / DHCP Reservation on D-Link WBR-1310 rev B?
This is not what the OP is requesting. Setting static IPs on the device will make it difficult for the device to easily travel between networks. What the OP is referring to (albeit by incorrect terminology) is "DHCP Reservation". With DHCP Reservations, the DHCP server keeps an IP address assignment reserved for systems by their MAC address. That way, systems with reserved IPs will always get the same IP when they reconnect - even though they're still using DHCP.

comment The easiest way to connect 2 PC into one local network?
We need to know what OS your systems are running on, what sort of router you're using to connect, whether or not the systems are using software firewalls, and how (Wi-Fi/LAN) they are connected. If both are connected via LAN, you probably don't need to configure the router. You may need to setup services and firewall options on the hosts, though. If connected via Wi-Fi, there may be additional settings you do need to tweak on the router. Please edit all of the requested details into your question post.

Your router model/version number might be helpful.

comment What is the correct term for the mouse pointer/nipple/joystick thingy in the middle of a laptop's keyboard?
Can't say I've ever heard "pushpad" used in place of "trackpad", but I can see the logic. I'm not really sure how one is particularly more generic than the other, though. Is "trackpad" trademarked or something?

@CamelBlues I knew it sounded familiar, but couldn't pin down why.

I wish we could up-vote edits. I almost down-voted the original incarnation of this answer, since it was more of a joke answer than actually useful. Now I don't want to up-vote it because the credit won't go to the person who actually made it more appropriate.
