I'm creating a new SD for an existing Pi 3B, starting from scratch with Buster Lite. When it comes up I can find no way to configure WIRED networking.
The configuration utility offers only wireless configuration.
using the (obsolete, I know) ifconfig command I see that eth0 has no IPV4 address. if I do "ifconfig eth0 up" it comes up with some weird address that I certainly never configured. My home LAN is 192.168.2.X, but it comes up with 169.x.x.x.
BTW, I want a static configuration, 192.168.2.2, and have commented out (in /etc/hosts) all the IPV6 and also the line equating the hostname with 127.0.0.1, and then if I do:
ifconfig eth0 down
then ifconfig eth0 address 192.168.2.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
I get some error message: address hostname lookup failure
I know that static IP on wired network works on Bust er on my other 3B (upgraded from previous release), and it also worked on this one, but not in my new installation.
Anyone point out what I'm missed? (I don't recall it being this hard for previous installations)...
Thanks in advance!
