I'm running dd-wrt (v24sp2 std-nokid) on two Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 routers 
located at remote sites and it does an amazing job (vpn between the two 
routers included).

Yes, it does "static leases" per MAC address which is what your looking 
for, and no, it wasn't difficult to set-up. I believe it's also very 
simple on the WRT54G, just follow the wiki instructions.

It does a lot more than that, by the way; I installed an 8 GB SD card, 
as per a known mod, and installed "Optware" on the card, which is kernel 
2.4 compiled for mips. With that, I have ftp, ssh, asterisk, cups, 
samba, you name it, on this tiny thing. It even crossed my mind to 
install mythtv on it.
