I probably won't be able to get the 890L up and running until Friday sometime  :( 

Any suggestions with settings for two Xbox One's gaming consoles and two Xbox 360 gaming consoles?  I'd like to make sure they have priority over anything else  ;D  Also, I'm wiling to try any suggested settings you might recommend and report back any findings  ;D

Am I able to set up the 890L without an internet connection (disabling WIFI on iMac and connecting ethernet cable from iMac to 890L)?

I finally got around to setting up the D-Link DIR-890L  ;D  So far, all is good and I really like what I see (interface / speeds / stability)  :)

After some "digging" around the menus, I was able to find where I can 'RESERVE" IP addresses.   ;D

Are there any drawbacks for setting devices connected to my home network outside the DHCP range (.100-.199)?  I have some "miscellaneous" devices that I never need to access via an IP address.

How about iPhones / iPads?

Only devices that you think need any router management should be with in the DHCP IP address pool.

Thanks Furry  :)  Just wondering if you have an example of a device / devices not needing "router management" vs a device / devices needing "router management"?

Obviously, I'm planning on keeping gaming consoles (two xbox one gaming consoles / two xbox 360 gaming consoles) and computers (iMac / MB Pro Retina / MB Air) within the DHCP pool, but I'm not sure what I can set outside the DHCP pool.  Are devices outside the DHCP pool given priority / bandwidth allocation over devices inside the DHCP pool?

Thanks again  :)
