I have a Linksys befxs41 v1.52 router that automatically sets up NAT addresses for the all the PCs connected to it. The problem is I have setup PORT FOWARDING and UPNP ports to certain IPs on my home network. If the Router's power supply is cut off for any reason, when the power is restored I have to reconfigure all my Forwarded Ports and UPnP Ports to a new NAT, because the router does not remember how I want it set.

Is there a way to (trick) the router into assigning the same address to the same PC no matter if Power is Interrupted to the router or any/or all of the PCs?

Well thanks for the read but the User manual does not tell me how to manually
set up PCs on my NAT. If you can find it please post the page # I am supposed to read because all I found is this

Static IP Addresses

A static IP address is a fixed IP address that you assign manually to a PC or
other device on the network. Since a static IP address remains valid until you
disable it, static IP addressing ensures that the device assigned it will always
have that same IP address until you change it. Static IP addresses are commonly
used with network devices such as server PCs or print servers.
If you use the Router to share your cable or DSL Internet connection, contact
your ISP to find out if they have assigned a static IP address to your account.
If so, you will need that static IP address when configuring the Router. You can
get the information from your ISP."

But no instructions anywhere in the manual that actually tells me how to setup the PCs on my NAT manually.

UPDATE: After talking to Linksys tech support on the phone it turns out that the
information I am looking for is not in the manual (thanks for the wise guy
answer lucassix).

it can be found at [url=http://tinyurl.com/dvqdm]this page[/url]

The Manual wrote:
1. I need to set a static IP address on a PC.
The Router, by default, assigns an IP address range of 192.168.1.100 to
192.168.1.150 using the DHCP server on the Router. To set a static IP address,
you can only use the ranges 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99 and 192.168.1.151 to
192.168.1.254. Each PC or network device that uses TCP/IP must have a
unique address to identify itself in a network. If the IP address is not unique to
a network, Windows will generate an IP conflict error message. You can assign
a static IP address to a PC by performing the following steps:

For Windows 95, 98, and Me:
A. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel. Double-click Network.
B. In The following network components are installed box, select the TCP/IP->
associated with your Ethernet adapter. If you only have one Ethernet adapter
installed, you will only see one TCP/IP line with no association to an Ethernet
adapter. Highlight it and click the Properties button.
C. In the TCP/IP properties window, select the IP address tab, and select
Specify an IP address. Enter a unique IP address that is not used by any
other computer on the network connected to the Router. You can only use
an IP address in the ranges 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.99 and 192.168.1.151
to 192.168.1.254. Make sure that each IP address is unique for each PC or
network device.
D. Click the Gateway tab, and in the New Gateway prompt, enter 192.168.1.1,
which is the default IP address of the Router. Click the Add button to accept
the entry.
E. Click the DNS tab, and make sure the DNS Enabled option is selected.
Enter the Host and Domain names (e.g., John for Host and home for
Domain). Enter the DNS entry provided by your ISP. If your ISP has not
provided the DNS IP address, contact your ISP to get that information or go
to its website for the information.
F. Click the OK button in the TCP/IP properties window, and click Close or
the OK button for the Network window.
G. Restart the computer when asked.

For Windows 2000:
