Yup, sure do have one.
On the right side under the "Advanced Settings" menu Click on LAN, then click on the tab on the top of the page that appears on the DHCP Server. Scroll down a bit and click yes where it says "Enable Manual Assignment". You should then get an option underneath it that says Manually Assigned IP around the DHCP list and that is where you can assign the manual assignments. (Hint, after entering the MAC address, IP address, Name hit the plus button before hitting apply on the bottom).
