In these screenshots someone has used the address of 192.168.1.1, this is a very good choice, and we recommend you using this also.
The DHCP Server should be left enabled, this allows the Router to choose these for you. You should also leave the Subnet Mask at 255.255.255.0

Possible Problems when Changing your LAN IP Address
When you change your LAN IP Address you are making a fundamental change to how your network functions and all computers on your network will be affected. You will lose your Internet connection when you apply these changes. Your router may reboot and require a couple of minutes to start responding again.
Also note that some computers may need to be rebooted after you make this change before they can talk to the router or on the Internet again.
