The easiest way is to check the LAN Config (or similar) page of the router.
They usually allow one to specify fixed IP and hostname for the DHCP clients
based on the MAC addresses.

That was easier than I thought. My initial approach already looked
this, except that for the ip address I always put the machine's name as in:
machine1# ssh user at machine2.example.com
which results in
ssh: Could not resolve hostname machine2.example.com: hostname nor servname
provided, or not known
I think the problem here lies with the /etc/hosts file where machine1 and
to be registered respectively. The thing here is that the ip isn't static
this approach somewhat difficult to realize.
