This tutorial describes how to setup networking using the default network manager dhcpcd included in Raspbian since 2015-05-05. It applies to the Foundation releases of Raspbian Buster, Raspbian Stretch, Raspbian Jessie and the last Raspbian Wheezy. Buster settings are identical to Stretch. How to setup Raspbian Networking If you are using an Ethernet ...

Edit /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and add id_str="school" under the schools wpa info and id_str="home" under your homes wpa info. Your file should now look similar to this: ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1 network={ ssid="SCHOOLS NETWORK NAME" psk="SCHOOLS PASSWORD" id_str="school" } network={ ...

Setup a Static IP Address Questions about setting Static IP Address are among the most common on this site. There are very many tutorials (many wrong, obsolete or incomplete). Disclaimer Before proceeding I feel obliged to state that setting up a static address is NOT recommended. Telecommunications Engineers do not do this. Static IP Addresses can ...

For a static IP address on an Ethernet connection: sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf Type in the following lines on the top of the file: interface eth0 static ip_address=192.168.1.XX/24 static routers=192.168.1.1 static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 sudo reboot This needs to be done for the recent Jessie update. /etc/network/interfaces should be left alone. ...

I recently stumbled across a console application that sorts all the wireless configuration hell out. You can also use this tool to configure the LAN interface. sudo apt-get install wicd-curses It will install quite a few other packages but it runs its own daemon in the background. This manages the networks and makes sure you connect to the ones you want. ...

With Raspbian Jessie release, you don't have to edit the interface file. Just updating the wpa_supplicant file with multiple networks would suffice. Here's how it looks - ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1 network={ ssid="SCHOOLS NETWORK NAME" psk="SCHOOLS PASSWORD" id_str="school" } network={ ssid="...

Actually you can add the priority option. Like so: network={ ssid="open" key_mgmt=NONE id_str="open" priority=3 } network={ ssid="secure" key_mgmt=WPA-EAP proto=WPA2 group=CCMP pairwise=CCMP eap=TLS ca_cert="/etc/certs/cacert.pem" client_cert="/etc/certs/client.pem" ...

Short and foolproof method how to do this with: Raspbian Jessie & Stretch This will set a fixed IP and enable the ssh daemon: Open /boot/cmdline.txt and add ip=192.168.1.20 to the end of the line. Create an empty file /boot/ssh Boot your Raspberry Pi On Linux start ssh pi@192.168.1.20 the password is raspberry. Use Putty on Windows to connect via ssh....

A couple of things to try: Are you able to ping the Raspberry Pi from the windows machine, open a command prompt and enter ping 192.168.0.198 (but with the IP address you are using for SSH), if you get replies the connection is good, if not there is a networking problem preventing SSH working Did you set-up SSH using raspi-config, or did you set it up ...

I'm still not fully up with systemd, however if you run sudo service networking status Do you get a message like Warning: Unit file changed on disk, 'systemctl daemon-reload' recommended. I did after editing /etc/network/interfaces If so, run sudo systemctl daemon-reload

From RFC2131: DHCP supports three mechanisms for IP address allocation. In "automatic allocation", DHCP assigns a permanent IP address to a client. In "dynamic allocation", DHCP assigns an IP address to a client for a limited period of time (or until the client explicitly relinquishes the address). In "manual allocation", a client's ...

Change directories to access the network settings: # cd /etc/netctl # cp examples/ethernet-static ./eth0 We need to edit the configuration file, etch0, and add in the settings we need. Before you proceed, you will need the following: Static IP address – I’m using 192.168.1.36. The netmask I’m using is 255.255.255.0 which is defined as "/24" or the first ...

In the end I got it working as I wanted, here is what I did. I restored the original /etc/network/interfaces file and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf to make sure those aren't an issue. I then ran startx to launch into the GUI and used WiFi Config to scan for my network and set it up. When setting it up, I specified the ID at the bottom of the ...

Technically, you can. However you will have to hack the route table to make sure that every packet knows exactly where it should go to. Take this as an example (from a screwed up Ubuntu VM I used to operate, as this is a generic Linux problem): eth0: 10.22.16.1/20, leads to machine 10.22.20.24. eth1: 10.22.16.1/16, leads to router 10.22.0.1 that goes to the ...

For my understanding "will not attempt to obtain a lease" means the DHCP server will never get a request for an ip address from this client so it means 192.168.0.10 is free and will give it to another client. Setting a static IP is not a matter of just configuring the machine you would like to have that IP. Otherwise, what would happen when multiple people ...

You can easily connect from OS X with ssh pi@hostname.local (the default hostname is raspberrypi). This works without a conventional IP address (it uses link-local address). If you are directly connecting the Pi to a computer it generally won't get an IP address, unless you have implemented Internet Connection Sharing on the host (which causes other ...

Setting a fixed IP address on a recent Jessie is easy: nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf and add at the bottom (i.e. below nohook lookup-hostname): interface eth0 static ip_address=192.168.1.10/24 static routers=192.168.1.1 static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 8.8.8.8 4.2.2.1 static domain_search=yourlan static domain_name=yourlan No other file to be touched, ...

I solved this by using the interface-specific unit (/lib/systemd/system/dhcpcd@.service), with an interface-specific dhcpcd.conf. For wlan0, static IP address and no wpa_supplicant: /etc/dhcpcd-wlan0.conf interface wlan0 static ip_address==192.168.100.1/24 denyinterfaces wlan0 # don't send DHCP requests nohook wpa_supplicant # don't call the ...

It is a bit unclear how do you want to connect the Laptop to the Raspberry Pi. I will assume that there is no other wifi router as access point running for example to connect to the internet so you want to connect to the RasPi direct by wifi. You tagged a bridge so it is possible to bridge the wired interface eth0 to wifi interface wlan0. If you setup the ...

My interfaces file look a bit different but works for me all the time. auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.1.123 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.1 broadcast 255.255.255.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 wpa-ssid "SSID" wpa-psk "PASSWORD" ...

You have to add AutoWired=yes to your static config in order to get it to work. Here's a tutorial: http://blog.pixxis.be/post/77298179924/setting-up-a-static-ip-on-arch-linux

You would be better to set your router to serve a static IP to the Pi. This way you can easily use the Pi on other networks, and avoid problems with duplicate IP


4

You have a typo in your config file - broadcasr should be changed to broadcast. Fix that and try again. Also, please add auto eth0 line to your config, preferably just before iface eth0 inet static line. This line tells Debian to start this interface automatically at boot. Without it, you have to run some commend like ifup eth0 to configure your interface.


4

It doesn't look like you've actually defined an address in your /etc/network/interfaces. Try: iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.1.xxx netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.254 dns-nameservers 192.168.1.254 wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf See the Debian wiki article on network configuration for more details.

As other folks have said, not at "the same time". However, this doesn't mean they can't be configured simultaneously. When you plug in the Ethernet cable, you'd need to unplug the Wi-Fi, and if the Wi-Fi is plugged in you'd need to unplug the Ethernet. Keep in mind that switching would probably break current connections, so don't do it in the middle of a ...

First thing you should do is make your Raspberry pi's IP static. So that whenever you power up your Raspberry pi it should connect to your access point(Hotspot). Connect to your Access point. Type ifconfig in raspberry pi's terminal and enter that IP address below, in my case it was 192.168.43.233 Start by editing the dhcpcd.conf file sudo nano /etc/...

I always recommend setting a static IP in your home router. Setting a static IP in the OS will bite you in the rear end at some point in time. Installing Samba/Avahi to adress your pi via its hostname. This way you don't need to remember an IP.


4

Although it is said that /etc/network/interfaces is deprecated (read it everywhere online) so far the only way I have been able to make it work is in fact through /etc/network/interfaces. The 'modern' way described in official Debian documentation in fact states that this new method is dangerous. The following should work for you, just put it in /etc/...


4

You have not defined a DNS-server. You have to manually define that when you are setting a static IP in the /etc/network/interfaces file. If you instead have used to router (or DHCP-server) to assign an IP-address, defining a DNS-server would not be necessary. Change the following lines: auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 10.0.0.5 netmask 255.255.255....


4

I'm assuming you run latest Raspbian i.e stretch Your last sentence asks "define dynamic or static IP for each WiFi access point separately" - you can use /etc/dhcpcd.conf to achieve this, in that you can define static IP address for a given SSID (one or more, simply repeat for each SSID), for any other SSID's will default to dynamic IP Simply add to the ...
