I think you need to educate yourself on a lot more than that before you take on this kind of work, the client will be looking to you for informed decisive advice. If you want to learn Cisco routers get hold of a software Cisco router emulator, the skills you learn here will help you when setting up all other routers.

I would also recommend Googling Professor Messer and watch the N+ videos to learn about networking.

You should learn before you take on paying customers. especially business customers. If you really want to learn as you go (terrible plan) atleast stick with things you are comfortable doing. Now you will look incompetent if you have to turn this business down or cant get the job done. Good luck sir.

I usually go to network settings properties to setup static Ip address with tcp/ipv4

As for the steps for assigning a printer a static IP out of the DHCP scope? When you say, "tcp/ipv4" it sounds like your talking about setting a static IP on a Windows PC. Printers are different.... Every printer has different prompts to get you to the network configuration area. You'll have to figure that out on-site....

Best Linksys router...? Try an E3000.

Be careful you are setting your self either for a major loss and downtime for the business or risk not doing a proper job and face negative feedback. Business can't afford you to learn on their network. From your other post you should apply for a job in a shop and learn the ropes for a year or two before branching out on your own.

good luck.
