I'm currently running a fresh install of Ubuntu 14.04 desktop, and trying to set up a static IP. I've been online watching videos and forums trying to setup a static IP address with no avail. I have a Belkin router with an IP of: 192.168.2.1 currently.
My server is hard-wired (ethernet cable) to the router, and has an IP of 192.168.2.7 currently. I looked at the following document:
but am confused what I'm doing incorrectly. Here are the values I'm trying to input:
address 192.168.2.200 (outside of my min/max IP range in my router)
network 192.168.2.1 (which is the router address)
broadcast 192.168.2.100 (which I read is supposed to be the min IP range)
gateway 192.168.2.1 (also the router address)
Am I doing this incorrectly? TIA!
