Do you use Automatic (DHCP) or Static IPv4 address?

Probably, you get a dynamic IPv4 address because you use DHCP instead of static IP address. You can change this settings in NetworkManager application.

Run the following command in a terminal as root user:

[root@yourmachine] nm-connection-editor

Select your connection, then click on 'Edit' button.

On the pop-up windows select the 'IPv4 Settings' tab and change the Method from Automatic (DHCP) to Manual and click on 'Add' button and add a static IP address and save your changes.
