So, good evening everyone!!
I dont want to bore you all with too many details, but I will add as much information as I can as I go along
Short version, I have a raspberry pi, with the Octopi client "2019-09-26-octopi-buster-lite-0.17.0.img"
and I am struggling to get the IP Address to be Static on the Raspberry.
I am installing a second raspberry , and following the steps, and it started and worked just fine. I tried to configure the thing for Satic IP and its only ever getting DHCP IP's
Last night around midnight, after installing and reinstalling about 10 times, it finally just started up and I have a static IP for the Cabled and the wireless. On Raspberry Pi # 2
This morning, I woke up, and went to Raspberry #1 which is configured the same way, but its more or less a year older, but has all the updates.
I did: sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.con (like on the second one)
I copied the information from the 2nd PI, and pasted it into the First Pi.
and I expected it to just work
it does not.
after the reboot, the DHCP ip changed, but they are still Dynamic.
I have NO clue what to do next,
