I want to setup static i/p on new rpi4. do I need two different i/p’s for wireless and ethernet? Can you direct me to a guide for doing this?
If you have ethernet cable, the Raspberry Pi will have two IP addresses.
If you’re following the Smart Home ebook, I don’t recommend using the ethernet cable. Many of our students had issues with the ethernet cable because of the conflicting IP addresses.
I don’t have any guides for setting a static IP address, but I found this guide: https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/static-ip-raspberry-pi
Sara, that got me going. When I did the old Home Automation course several years ago, I used a static ip for just that reason. I have rekindled my interest and I am just starting the Smart Home book. I have two older Pi units running servers that I built back then and they have never failed me. This will give me a chance to catch up on things a little bit and help clear the cobwebs out of my aging brain.
