TG585 v7 - DHCP binding P to MAC ?

on my DrayTek 2800VG I can bind  IP to MAC within DHCP so that the same MAC always gets the same IP.
I can't see a way of doing this in the Thomson TG585 v7
Or is there a workaround ?

The Draytek has lots of features that many home routers don't. There may be a way to do this via the (very complex and awkward) command line interface (accessed via telnet) but I doubt it.
The work-a-round is to assign a fixed IP address to the PC/Laptop.

Kind of - try a massive DHCP refresh interval - several days instead of 30 minutes.
