I have not tried this but it would be a setting in the /etc/network/interfaces file

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

iface wlan0 inet static
  address 192.168.100.100
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway 192.168.100.1
  wpa-ssid "your wireless network"
  wpa-psk "your password"

that instruction was from when you connect to your Raspberry Pi and access it via putty/ssh or from the console.

Its seems that when you turn off the pi, it needs to establish an IP address so its looking for one from the router when I turn it on again.. I have an older Linksys. Does the edimax ask for a designated IP range that I can set on the lynksys so I don't have to set it for it?

most routers will let you map a MAC address to a specific ip during DHCP - you just need to figure out your wireless MAC address and set it to a specific ip in your router.

have you also tried accessing http://fpp in your browser - most dhcp servers will set fpp to the current ip assigned to it
