    I don't have a Stoker (although I'd like to someday!), but generally speaking you should be able to assign a static IP through your router if you know the MAC address of the device. Try looking for it in your router settings.  That's the way I've done it for my other devices in the past.  I limit my MAC addresses to the devices in my house and assign them their own as an additional layer of security.

    Tak, have you tried running Utilities->Air Port Utility and selecting your Airport Extreme then hover the pointer over the Wireless Client list that shows up and see if you can't find the wireless client that you don't recognize (the Stoker's address).  It will display the device's MAC address and IP address.  Make note of the MAC address and then click the Edit button.  When the Airport Utility window opens select Network and then click the + under DHCP Reservations to add an assigned IP Address for the MAC address of your Stoker.

    Hope this helps.
