I have a Debian 9 netbook here. Because I have an unusual setup here, I need to use manual IP address configuration. I used the default network manager to setup the static IPv4 and IPv6 addresses on the wifi
interface. When I start the system, all works fine, and the correct IPs and routing information as I setup via the GUI are in place.
However, when there's a network upset (most probably due to the router rebooting, or some other wifi disturbance), the static IPs are gone and are replaced by a DHCP assigned IPv4 address. This causes a number of issues, breaking connectivity with the BBS that is running on the
In the good old days, I'd have done a total manual configuration, and
this would have stuck, but I decided to use the tools provided for 2 reasons:
1. To work with the new ways of doing things, rather than figting the system.
2. To simplify the configuration of the wifi (i.e. not having to mess around with wpa-supplicant directly).
Anyone seen this behaviour? And better still, anyone have a solution?
