I'm following an instruction list (from a IT-guy that I cannot reach) to set up my Raspberry Pi.

It says that I have to change in the file /etc/network/interfaces/ 'iface eth0 inet dhcp' into 'iface eth0 inet static'. But there is no 'iface eth0 inet dhcp' in that file, only something that looks like it: 'iface eth0 inet manual'.

The final purpose is to connect the raspberry to a LAN.

Does somebody knows why the DHCP isn't there and what I can do about it?

  • Because it's already set to manual/static configuration. – Seth Jul 5 '17 at 10:25
  • Raspberry Pi default config is DHCP. Unless you need it to set it to Static - you don't need to tinker with those files. – Darius Jul 5 '17 at 10:37
  • Ok, so that couldn't be a cause why the PI doesn't connect to the internet via cable? – LucasW Jul 5 '17 at 11:42
