I am positively pulling my hair out over this.
Yesterday I did a fresh install (via Windows 10 Hyper-V Quick Create) of Ubuntu 18.04. I then did a full software update.
Today, all I want to do is set my IP address to static, but it's not working. It's like the config change isn't being saved. I've been Googling for the last four hours and not finding an answer.
- Click the little LAN icon in the upper right corner of the desktop
- Clicked "Wired Connected"
- Clicked "Wired Settings"
- Clicked the little Gear next to the Wired connection
- Selected "Manual" for IPv4 Method
- Clicked the IPv4 tab and put in 10.0.0.5/255.255.255.0/10.0.0.1 for the address info
- Put in the DNS server (10.0.0.1, my router is DNS too) and toggled Automatic to OFF
- Toggled Automatic to OFF next to Routes
- Clicked APPLY
- I also disable IPv6.
- Then turned the connection off/on (each time it asks for password which I provide)
No change. If I review all my settings in the tabs, they're all there. But, if I close the Settings window and start over at step 1, everything is back to "automatic." It's like nothing is being saved.
Yes, I know that I can set my router to provide a static-DHCP address, but that's not the point -- What am I missing??
