    If your router has "DHCP Reservation" the easiest way is to use that to tell the router to always assign the specified address.

    Else assign the ps4 avalid address that is in the LAN address space but outside the router's DHCP address range.

    Hello. First of all, having a static IP address will not give you a "steady" connection. If your connection isn't steady now, making your IP address static won't change that. Once you get an IP address, DHCP is out of the picture except once every 4 days or so, or every time you reboot the PS4.

    To change your settings, go into the PS4 network settings and manually put in an IP address. Look at the IP address of any other device connected to your network. You will use the same gateway and subnet mask of one of those devices. The only thing you will change is the last number on the 4-digit IP address. It must be an address not used by any other system on your network, nor any address that might be used by your DHCP server. Try 10.
