I am using pfsense and it provides an IP address to all clients. Is there any option in there so that I can define the client IP address based upon their MAC address, so that I can measure how much they have downloaded.

Just to note: this is not a static IP, it is a DHCP reservation. Any additional DHCP options besides the standard IP, gateway, and netmask are still passed to the reserved clients. – MDMarra Dec 21 '09 at 1:30

Services -> DHCP Server. Then add entries to the table at the bottom of the page.
