WNR1000v4 keeps changing internal ip address

All,

I have a PC that I need to telnet into on a frequent basis. Our IP assigned by Brighthouse is static. Set up a port forward on the router for port 23 (telnet), assigned iniitially to 192.168.1.12. All has been ok for months, then a few days ago I found that the telnet PC has an IP of 192.168.1.10. So I changed port forwarding from ...12 to ...10, all ok - until today found the PC had changed to ...8.

This PC stays on 24/7, except for a reboot every 24hrs. Automatic updates are turned off.

Any way to force the PC to stay on a given IP?

Thank you,

Russ
