Should be a simple question for you experts!

I run Plex Media Server on my Dell Workstation mapped to a Synology Network drive where the videos are stored. PMS requires identifying a specific port tied to the Dell Ip but every time I reboot, the Dell the Ip changes so the port setting is no longer valid.

I entered the Ip information for Dell into the network adapter TCP/Ipv4 (from ipconfig) by selecting "Use the following Ip" and select "Validate settings upon exit" but the operation fails with a DHCP Not Enabled message. There's no Ip conflict and it's the same Ip already entered in PMS.        WHY?     And more importantly, how do I resolve it?
