Are you familiar with changing the ip settings under your net device's properties?
Setting them to automatic (assuming the router supports this which most do)
should allow your machine to get it's own address on the network.
I know how to find the URL for my router's settings, yes. Interesting that it's set up that way; the router's current settings are the default, as far as I know (it's a D-link).

So, just because I'm curious

What is the advantage/disadvantage to static versus dynamic IP addresses? Why would somebody want one or the other (especially if using a wireless router)?
