If I understand it correctly, you describe how to create a static private IP address (192.168.x.x). So far so good, but why would anybody wish for a static private address?

Oh well, may be there are some folks who need that.
In this case I strongly suggest you make it clear at the very beginning that it's private addresses you're talking about. And delete all the stuff about IPs being allocated by the ISP: private one aren't.

With some routers you can tie a static private address to the MAC address. No, I'm not going to write a tutorial how to do it, check the router manual :-)

I would run through it and look for grammatical errors if this is going to be used professionally (just skimming, I found a few)



Other than that the guide looks well made and easy to follow!
