I am trying to set a static IP address for my server, but what ifconfig is returning is leaving me a little bit confused:
If I run the command
I see that wlan0 is the only returned option that is sending and receiving packets besides the local loopback. This should be, as I am using a PCI adapter in my desktop in order to access the internet wirelessly. (I know this is not the most efficient way - learning purposes)
The problem is, I do not know how to configure /etc/network/interfaces with a wlan0 address; no matter where I look on the internet, they all say to use eth0, but I am not using Ethernet.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
