How to give your Raspberry Pi a Static IP

Address - UPDATE
April 20, 2016
This tutorial will show you how to set a static IP address on your Pi with the release of Raspbian Jessie. At
the time of writing, the latest release date of Raspbian Jessie is 18-03-2016 with Kernal version 4.1.

I recommend doing this on a fresh install, however if you have attempted to set a static IP address already,
you may have found yourself editing the interfaces le (/etc/network/interfaces). I hope you made a backup,
because youll need to remove any edits you have made, and revert it back to its original state!

The following is done over SSH, but you could just as well plug your Pi into a monitor, hook up a keyboard
and mouse, and use the Terminal instead.

Start by editing the dhcpcd.conf le

sudo nano /etc/dhcpcd.conf

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the le and add one, or both of the following snippets. Depending on
whether you want to set a static IP address for a wired connection or a wireless connection eth0 = wired,
wlan0 = wireless.

Youll need to edit the numbers in the snippet so they match your network conguration.

interface = This denes which network interface you are setting the conguration 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.

To exit the editor, press ctrl+x

To save your changes press the letter Y then hit enter

Now all you need to do is reboot, and everything should be set!


You can double check by typing


And checking the interfaces IP address 2/6

Thank you! Finally! A simple how-to for Static IP with Jessie. Worked perfectly! Saving this locally for

No idea why they changed Raspbian so much with this Jessie release. What was wrong with the way it
was before? Anyways, thanks again!

The /24 denotes that the leading 24 bits are common to all IP addresses on this network. It's
equivalent to the old way of providing a net mask: (leading 24 bits are 1's)

How would you enter the SSID and WPA key if using WiFi?

It is set in conguration le referenced by the main networking conguration le.

1. sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

2. sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

pairwise=CCMP TKIP

It is possible to add more than network{} blocks. Use priority=# to indicate higher priority.
