How to configure static ipadddress in RaspberryPi

The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and affordable computer that you can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects.

This tutorial explains the steps to configure static ipaddress in RaspberryPi.

Step1: Open the configuration file

  nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf

Step2: Update the configuration like the example given below.

FOR Wired,

  interface eth0
  static ip_address=192.168.0.10/24
  static routers=192.168.0.1
  static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1

FOR Wifi,

  interface wlan0
  static ip_address=192.168.0.200/24
  static routers=192.168.0.1
  static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1

Step3: Reboot the system

Note:

interface = This defines which network interface you are setting the configuration for.
static ip_address = This is the IP address that you want to set your device to. (Make sure you leave the /24 at the end)
static routers = This is the IP address of your gateway (probably the IP address or your router)
static domain_name_servers = This is the IP address of your DNS (probably the IP address of your router). You can add multiple IP addresses here separated with a single space.
