I have set a static IP on my primary linux box, so that I can ssh to it from
home. If I can set up the same access, via my router, and just have all the
machines using DHCP I would do so. However, I often need to access and move
files from one box to the other, and usually just ssh to each box, or scp to
move files. Can this be handled too, by the router instead? 

Your explanation sounds exactly like what I am experiencing. I'll dig into
cron and see what I can learn there.
