If the default gateway for my router is 192.168.1.254, then what IP range should I use for devices connecting to the internet through it?

Have a look at this site here (http://subnetmask.info/) for lots of answers

You can use anything from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.253.
Subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0.
Dns can be the routers ip or your isp's dns or opendns if you want.
Gateway ip should be the router at 192.168.1.254.
Can't you just set everything to dhcp / automatic as the router should take care of the rest?

Depends what youre going to do. I use a static ip on this (for mirc to send files), and the Xbox (so, I can add it to DMZ in the router). So, its easier for it to get through the router. Otherwise, I would have to add so many ports, go backwards and forwards, to see if it works. Then save the settings, then reboot the router

I need to manually set IP's for each device as a couple of notebooks seem to be fighting for the same IP.

Just follow what cyabro said. Just make sure 2 ips arent the same, or they'll conflict

The router should be able to assign IP addresses automatically to each of the computers. Make sure the necessary settings are turned on? DHCP would need to be turned on, probably.
