How To Setup Static IP Address on Raspberry Pi

First decide on an IP address to use. You need to pick one that is both unused by any other machine on the network and within the allowed range of IP addresses for your home hub. In this case, I will use Modify the contents of the file, changing the word dhcp to static.

With the file changed as shown here, the static IP address has been assigned to the eth0 interface.

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp

For most networks, the netmask setting should be set to and the gateway should be the IP address of your home router irself. This will be the same as the IP Address you use to connect to the admin console of your router. After you edit and save the file, run the following commands to clear out all the existing DHCP leases, and restart your Pi so that changes will take effect.

$ sudo rm /var/lib/dhcp/*
$ sudo reboot
