I’ve tried to make a static IP both for Network and WiFi. When I made some changes to dhcpcd.conf file my result was as above : 4 IP address (two for Network,two for WiFi and all they were working!). I went through wpa_supplicant.conf files (they are two of them: one original in /etc/wpa_supplicant/ and second one, which is used by max2play, in /opt/max2play/ ) but nothing has got better. I’ve read some notes about raspbian jessie and found very simple solution.
Only what you need to do is go to /etc/network/interfaces and change lines to this (addresses are only for example):
# /etc/network/interfaces auto lo iface lo inet loopback #auto eth0 # managed by ifplugd #iface eth0 inet dhcp <--- if you what to have static IP for Network hash this line and use dhcpcd.conf file to determine your IP #hwaddress ether 1a:64:b6:bf:36:37 allow-hotplug wlan0 auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static #change dhcp to static address 192.168.0.50 #static IP for RPi gateway 192.168.0.1 #IP of your router netmask 255.255.255.0 wpa-ssid "NETWORK_SSID" wpa-psk "PASSWORD" #pre-up wpa_supplicant -B w -D wext -i wlan0 -c /opt/max2play/wpa_supplicant.co$ #post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant #hash last two lines
Now my RPi3 with M2P onboard is connecting with the same IP to WiFi everytime.
