assign static ip to enterprise linux through d-link router isp gives dhcp ip address
Posted on 2009-07-12
I have a home network of 2 PC connected to a D-Link DI-604 Router.
So you get the picture, the router has a WAN port and 4 LAN ports.
PC #1 is physically attached to LAN port #1
PC #2 is physically attached to LAN port #2
My DSL modem is physically attached to the WAN port.
The router provides internet for both machines.
PC #1 is running Oracle Enterprise Linux and I need to assign a static ip address
PC#2 is running a windows os
I am able to ping over the network from windows to linux as I'm testing the linux ip address.
The problem is whenever the linux machine reboots it gets assigned a new ip address. I can see the ip address
appear in my router configuration through its web browser interface on the windows machine PC#2.
I have tried assigning a static ip through the router and there is that means to do it but it doesn't stay.
