It's really not clear what you're asking. What's preventing you from assign a public IP address to each of those hosts? – David Schwartz Feb 23 '13 at 8:31

You can assign static IP addresses to client but It's easier to use DHCP to assign dynamic address to clients.

How to configure DHCP on router depends on type of router you are using (not specified).

And never write your real IP addresses in public forums, there are some mallicious attackers just looking for this kind of things. use x.x.x.0/24 instead.

IF you need more information please ask in more detail.
