Those instructions do set the address, but it won't survive a reboot.  You need to edit /etc/network/interfaces and change out the dhcp entry there.  Then restart networking.

sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces

# The primary network interface

auto eth0
 iface eth0 inet static
 address 192.168.1.100
 gateway 192.168.1.1
 netmask 255.255.255.0
 network 192.168.1.0
 broadcast 192.168.1.255

Open in new window


sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
