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:
ssid="SCHOOLS NETWORK NAME"
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).
If the reason you are contemplating a Static IP Address is you want your Pi to be assigned a predictable IP Address you can request the DHCP server to assign one.
E.g. Adding the ...
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:
This needs to be done for the recent Jessie update. /etc/network/interfaces should be left alone. ...
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 -
ssid="SCHOOLS NETWORK NAME"
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. ...
Actually you can add the priority option. Like so:
Short and foolproof method how to do this with:
Raspbian Jessie, Stretch, Buster
This will set a fixed IP and enable the ssh daemon:
Stick the sd card in your pc and find that it has two partitions; mount the smallest partition as /boot/
Open /boot/cmdline.txt and add ip=192.168.1.20 to the end of the line.
Create an empty file /boot/ssh
Unmount the sd ...
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 ...
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 ...
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
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 ...
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/...
You can easily connect from OS X with ssh email@example.com (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 ...
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/...
Setting a fixed IP address on a recent Jessie is easy:
and add at the bottom (i.e. below nohook lookup-hostname):
static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
No other file to be touched, ...
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:
iface eth0 inet static
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:
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.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet static
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.
It doesn't look like you've actually defined an address in your /etc/network/interfaces. Try:
iface wlan0 inet static
See the Debian wiki article on network configuration for more details.
This happened to me too (albiet on Raspbian).
If you'd rather not totally disable the dhcpcd service, you can add this to /etc/dhcpcd.conf to inform it of your static interface:
static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1 18.104.22.168
This will stop it from ...
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 ...
