You can't, unless you rent a static IP from your ISP.

Yea like the above poster said, that is determined by the DHCP of your ISP. You could call and ask if you wanted. Generally they don't do this to deter you from running websites and stuff on your home connection which could potentially use alot of bandwidth.

A solution to this is using DDNS (dynamic DNS)
