sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
assign static ip
assign static ip

Now add the following lines in above file with your desired ip values

autho eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.45
gateway 192.168.1.1
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
  • address is your IP address
  • gateway is your gateway IP address
  • netmask is your netmask address
  • broadcast is the broadcast address.
