I'm not familiar with this device, but can't you set the DHCP address
range? and if that is so, just assign your server a static IP under or
over that range.  That's how I do in on my WRT54G.

My DHCP address range is set to .100 to .150, and anything I want to
have a static IP, I just set them up with an address under .100
