Pi with static ip address is unable to update



  • I've changed my Duet pi to a static ip address and now when I do,

    sudo apt-get update
    

    I get

    pi@duet3:~ $ sudo apt-get update

    I can go back to a dynamic address and update works. Anyone else experience this?



  • You just lost all internet connectivity ... not a duet or even a pi issue but rather an issue with your router.
    Are you using your router to assign a static IP address? does the router and the pi talk? Can you ping the router from the pi ? Many questions .....



  • @luckyflyer said in Pi with static ip address is unable to update:

    I can go back to a dynamic address and update works. Anyone else experience this?

    how did you set your static ip? and did you include a dns server in the setup?



  • I used an online tutorial here
    https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-static-ip-address/
    This is the data that I entered,

    interface eth0
    static ip_address=192.168.0.180
    interface wlan0
    static ip_address=192.168.0.181
    static routers=192.168.1.1
    static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1

    My pc can communicate with duet pi but Duet pi web browser doesn't seem to be able to get on the internet.



  • I think I may have entered the wrong dns server. My router says this,
    Primary DNS Server : 192.168.254.254
    I'll try that.



  • @luckyflyer most consumer routers provide gateway and dns server on the same address.

    its also a bit odd that you have your IP addresses in 192.168.0.0 and the router in 192.168.1.0, but if the netmask is not /24 it makes a little more sense (except 192.168. range is meant for class C so still a bit odd.

    simplest is probably to run ipconfig /all on your windows computer and use the detfaut gateway and dns server from there if you didn't solve it already.



  • I ran IPconfig/all and had a 1 digit dns error,192.168.1.1 should be 192.168.0.1. Corrected it and now works.
    Thanks again



  • presumably same for the routers address?



  • Yes it is, was a typo.
    Can you take a look at last couple of posts in need help installing ustreamer and advise?
