I'd like to reserve a static IP address for a device (a HP printer) that connects to my HG659b modem. If this possible? If so how?

can you not just set the IP address on the printer to an address that is outside the DHCP pool on the router?

On the router, go to the Home Network tab, and from there to LAN interface on the left-hand side, and then click on DHCP reservation and create new static address. Should be straight forward from there. You just need to know what the device name is on the router (found under LAN Devices)
