For the majority of users, there probably won't be any need to specifically allocate an IP address to any of your devices (PCs, games consoles etc).
One nice feature of the BT hub is that it remembers the IP address it previously assigned to a device, so even if the hub loses power momentarily and/or is rebooted, the hub will remember what it previously assigned to various devices, and therefore won't attempt to supply a previously assigned IP address to a different device.
If you specifically wish to use your hub's DHCP server to reserve and allocate a specific IP address from the DHCP pool to an existing device, go to this menu:
Home > Local Network > Advanced Settings
Click on 'EDIT ADDRESS ALLOCATION' as shown below.
A new page will appear. Choose the existing device you wish to assign a new fixed IP address from the DHCP pool.
(Note: the names of the detected devices have been intentionally blanked out in above picture)
Click on the list box, and you will be presented with a list of possible addresses from the DHCP pool which you can choose to use.
Once you have made and saved your changes, you may need to restart the device (eg. PC) for the new changes to take effect.
