I changed my computer's dynamic ip address to static, but after reboot when I opened local area connection properties, then I saw IP address and subnet mask values have become empty. Then just to confirm, i typed command ipconfig in cmd, the same values were shown to what I entered in local area connection properties before rebooting my system. So my question here is how can i force my computer to keep static ip address even after reboot?

  • Normally those settings will will stay after a reboot. Have you tried it multiple times? Maybe you changed a wrong adapter? – KawaGreen Nov 17 '15 at 11:49
  • the reason it is so far because of my wifi-router? – Sachin Nov 17 '15 at 12:16
  • Then have you changed the correct adapter? If you're using Wifi, you need to set the wifi adapter properties. – KawaGreen Nov 17 '15 at 12:18
  • I think i should reserve my computer ip address in DHCP settings. – Sachin Nov 17 '15 at 13:42

If your router supports static dhcp addresses, assign a static dhcp lease to your computers MAC address and you will always get the same IP address every time your computer gets one from your router.
