Airport Utility changed all my IP addresses!?

I added a ethernet connected Time Capsule to my existing Airport Extreme network and during the installation process to have the time capsule co-exist with my Airport Extreme I think the Airport Utility somehow changed all my IP addresses to the 192.168.xxxxx series where they used to all be the series.

I had to try a few times to get the setup to work and everything does except for the following issue.
I have a couple static ip's set up for some network controlled A/V equipment and they now don't work or talk to my network.

I'm not sure what the utility changed to cause this. I only wanted the Time Capsule for wireless backup and not to be my "primary" network source.
I remember some reference to NAT and a few other errors.
At one point the Airport Utility rebooted my existing Airport Extreme to get the Time Capsule to work with it and I didn't expect that.
I suspect thats where things changed.
All my devices are in bridge mode, set to "create a wireless network" and hooked up to my U-Verse 2wire by ethernet.
I'm not sure of the implications of screwing around with the address ranges.
Should I try to change my static IP's to the series or try to get everything back to assigning the numbers?
Easiest or best fix would be appreciated.
