I seem to recall a post on the Silicon Dust forum which confirmed that 
you can in fact set a static address on an HDHR unit. (I haven't tried 
it, myself).

Instead, I set up the router as a DHCP server, attached the HDHR, 
reserved the first dhcp address and matched it to the MAC address of the 
HDHR, and then turned off the DHCP server on the router. The address 
continues through power cycles on the router and the hdhr, so it is 
effectively a static.
