IP address changes automatically

I have 3 Win 7 computers in LAN (simple lan) with 192.168.1.5 / 6 / 8 ip address given to them. Default gateway set to 192.168.1.1 ( ip of my broadband modem).

Many times when my pcs are restarted , the IP address fields are turned blank and the option " Obtain IP address automatically" gets selected...

why this happens ? what should i do to keep the ip settings permanent ?
