Hello All,

I have some Single Board Computers running Ubuntu 10.10 and I have spent many a night messing around with network settings.

I have developed a program that sets the computers to act as Ad Hoc Access Points and other boards that connect give themselves a static IP.

This runs like a dream, but I cannot connect my Android tablet to it. Obviously, the tablet is trying to obtain an IP address from the Board but is getting nothing back.

Does anybody know of a way/guide to set up Ubuntu to automatically assign IPs?

Even better if it can allow static IPs and give IPs to those that do not specify an IP?

Many Thanks!
