I have a Raspberry Pi and while its plugged into the network via ethernet, my setup works and I can connect to the static IP.
Today I bought a wlan adapter and after install it works great too... but only one thing. It will not start up by it self?
To get the wlan running I actually have to plug the LAN cable in for a few sec, then I can connect by its static IP. After the LAN cable is plugged in I can unplug it and connect to it wirelessly. How wierd is that?
I'm guessing something aint starting up? Before it notices the LAN cable and starts up the service?
My setup is:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.50 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static wpa-ssid <ssid> wpa-psk <key> address 192.168.1.51 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1
