I've seen a similar question before--- actually we've talked about it on this forum.

Long story short, you'll likely either need to get a connection with a static IP, or talk to the service you are accessing to work together to come up with a solution.

In my area, I asked Comcast and AT&T DSL service about a static IP, and they both replied that this (static IP) is a business-class service, not residential. This was early 2000's.

Basically, what ATL already said applies. The IP Address is set by your ISP, so you'll have to talk to them. If they treat it as a business service, it'll cost you more per month.
