I tried setting up a static ip on my ubuntu 16.04 system using this guide
so I bought a network card since my motherboard's ethernet port is broken but when i enter sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces to input the new info, the card doesn't show up althought it does when I enter ifconfig. As you can see the card is connected to the internet and working properly;
I also tried inputting the ports to see what would happen with the desired static ip's and all, but my connection would only work for a second. Any ideas how to fix this? thanks!
update: I was unable to set a static ip with my router because of some dns issue, so i hooked my pc up directly to the modem (which is also a router) and using what @G_G posted i was able to set my desired ip
