All of these little routers allow you set a static internal IP address for yourself. All you need to do is look at the address pool that the router is assigning like 192.168.1.50 - 192.168.1.100 and enter an address manually on each of your computers that is in the same network but outside of that pool. For instance 192.168.1.25 - 192.168.1.49 . Also set the default gateway on these machines to the internal address of your router, typically something like 192.168.1.1 and set the dns address on each machine with the same values entered on your router.
