How to assign fixed IP address at the router?

Healer
I want to assign fixed IP addresses to specific MAC addresses using the DHCP reservation in the router (Netgear). When I assign those being connected at the time I get error message of duplicate MAC address. So I turn off those computers in question. I manage to add them in. However, it wouldn't work. The ipconfig shows the IPv4 address takes over the gateway address and the default gateway address is blank. I wonder what I could have done wrong. I don't want to set up from the computer side because I believe it is more reliable doing this way when I move the computer around between different networks. I don't want to use DHCP server for security reason so computer won't work automatically when plugged onto the network. I avoid using netsh for the sake of convenience.
