Windows 7: Static IP to get networked home theatre connected

Static IP to get networked home theatre connected

I have a WiFi link to my ADSL modem.
Gateway is 192.168.1.1.
DHCP enabled, range 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.200,
subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
My ISP DNS servers are 196.7.7.7 and 196.7.8.9, but the modem gets them automatically.

I have a home theatre connected to the PC's ethernet port at 169.254.184.185, getting its IP dynamically. I can access shared folders on my PC just fine.

But the home theatre is an LG, and I want to use the LG AV Remote app. For this to work, the home theatre must connect to the WiFi router so it can swap data with my cellphone.

I see 3 possible solutions:
1) Plug the home theatre into the router (cable length problem for a quick test) and set the WiFi up so that the shared folders on the PC are accessible.
2) Assign my ethernet port statically to 192.168.1.xxx. But I can't work out what values to use. Anything I try is a problem.
3) Connect PC to modem via ethernet. This is problematic because of passage. (Hence the WiFi link.)
