I have a dynamic IP address and I don't want to change it every time I connect to the Internet. I want to get a static IP address; what can I do?

Why do you want a static IP ? Contact your ISP & tell them you want a static IP – Sathya Jan 16 '11 at 14:46

If you're talking about your WAN IP, you need to contact your ISP. Otherwise, you could use a dynamic DNS service like No-IP, if the problem is it being consistent.

If you're just talking about your LAN IP, some routers allow you to lease based on MAC address, or you could just go to Network Settings, right click your adapter, Properties, IPv4, Properties and change it to an IP address within your LAN range.
