I would like a wireless static IP address for my portable Volumio 2 box. Changing the network options in the GUI does not work … Volumio 2 says configuration saved successfully, but when I look again at the network settings, we are back to automatic IP.
On my Volumio 1.5 box (different one), I have the static IP set by altering the /etc/network/interfaces file, but this doesn’t work for Volumio 2.
I know that Raspbian altered things last year so that the interfaces file contains the line ‘iface wlan0 inet manual’ rather than ‘iface wlan0 inet static’, and then the static IP address was sorted by the dhcpcd client configuration. However, Volumio doesn’t appear to be using this new client at all.
Anyone out there successfully using Volumio 2 with a static IP address?
