I use a Raspberry Pi Zero W with Raspbian Stretch Lite 2017.11.29. I set up a SSH connection from my laptop to the Pi via USB to configure it.
Now I just do
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org on my Ubuntu 17.10 laptop to connect to the Pi. Everything works fine!
Since I want a wireless adapter with a static IP address I added the following to the file
auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.255.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 wireless-mode Master wireless-power off
After doing that I can no longer access my Pi via SSH. My computer also does not find my Pi anymore if I connect it via USB. What can I do to make it work again?
Help of any kind would be highly appreciated.
