This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

The file you need to modify is /etc/network/interfaces and not /etc/networking/interfaces. Could you post what you have in this ìnterfaces file to see if it is complete? (you need to have the iface eth0 inet static line or similar and the configuration for the the interface (like IP, gateway, dns info)
