Feature request: wifi manager

Post by Jes » Sun Dec 25, 2016 2:49 pm

I don't know if here is the right place to put this...

Is it possible to implement an option in the wifi manager to configure an static IP address (and gateway) for a single SSID? I'd like to have an static IP in my home wifi networks but to be able to obtain an IP via DHCP at home or so.

Thanks

Jes

Fixed! :D

The best way to request new feature is by using our tracker:
http://issues.ghostbsd.org/projects/ghostbsd/issues

Int he meantime, you can set a fixed IP address by editing /etc/rc.conf:

Code: Select all

ifconfig_ue0="192.168.0.223/24"
defaultrouter="192.168.0.1"
Substitute "ue0" with the name of your driver adatpter, and tweak addresses as required.

once done, restart the network interface:

Code: Select all

service netif restart
service routing restart
