Re: Setting up static IP connection with Ubuntu 12.04
Yikes!! Please try:
I changed the /etc/Network/interfaces file to
auto lo etho
iface lo net loopback
iface lo net static
I assume you have some typographical errors in there. Spelling, terminology, etc. are crucial. Ubuntu won't guess what you want. It will simply not perform. Reboot and let us have your report.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
