So, I have my raspberry pi running Raspbian 9 configured using a static IP address for both WLAN0 and ETH0.
Both work if I boot with an ethernet-cable plugged in.
But, in certain situations, it happens that my pi should boot without a cable plugged in, or with the router not being alive yet. When this situation occurs, for some reason my raspberry pi will not connect to the network (as in: I can never reach it, be it by SSH or ping) untill I give it a reset.
I've read about an option "allow_hotplug" which sounds like the thing I need, but that doesn't work either (and I guess I shouldn't even be touching /etc/network/interfaces on Debian Stretch..)
Could anyone point me in the right direction? I really need this pi to be reachable on the network, even when the network is a bit slower in starting than the pi.
