I've been trying to reconfigure my second Raspberry Pi after half a year since the first one. When I refer back my old notes (which worked for the first one), I could not get the static IP working for the second R-Pi. Could it be possibly due to the different internet setting? (I'm currently using my campus LAN)
/etc/network/interfaces looks like this:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet static address 172.20.15.120 netmask 255.255.252.0 network 172.20.12.0 broadcast 172.20.15.255 gateway 172.20.15.254 allow-hotplug wlan0 auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
However after I did a
$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
it does not give me any address.
What's wrong with my configuration? Another question, can I have both Ethernet and WiFi dongle connected?
