    yeah just set your router up so it only accepts certain MAC id's then put it on a time schedule

    Or else you can get Cisco Network Magic (it's not free though).

    the router will almost always assign the ipod the same IP address every time is connects. so just connect the ipod to the network and check your router to see what it set it to.

    If it goes to grab an ip address on it's own, and that is blocked, wouldn't DHCP just give it another that isn't?

    If you can't specify mac addresses, I don't think it can be done.

    But I have yet to see a router that doesn't give you both mac identifiers and ip address in the status section. Even the cheesiest routers do that.
