I'm trying to get a static ip-address with wpa_supplicant. I used to have this, but somehow it is not working anymore. I can't findout what the reason is.
I have set up my computer up as a router.
eth0
Is the insite network:
address 192.168.0.1 uses a static ip-address

eht1
Is my outsite netork. It used to have a static addres, now it's only working with dhcpcd.
address 192.168.178.28 now uses dhcp.

If it might not be possible to have a static addres with wpa_supplicant I would like that /etc/resolv.conf isn't alterted.
I tried to do this by setting dhcp_eth1="nodns" but it didn't work.

Can anyone tell me how to make wpa_supplicant work with a static addres or option B to make nodns possible?

I will post some config files here:
Code:

elmarotter@masterserver ~ $ cat /etc/conf.d/net
# This blank configuration will automatically use DHCP for any net.*
# scripts in /etc/init.d.  To create a more complete configuration,
# please review /usr/share/doc/openrc/net.example and save your configuration
# in /etc/conf.d/net (this file :]!).

dns_domain_lo="eotter1979.xs4all.nl"

config_eth0="192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 brd 192.168.0.255"
#routes_eth0="default via 192.168.0.1"
dns_servers_eth0="192.168.0.1"
associate_timeout_eth0=60

gateways_eth1="192.168.178.1"
modules="wpa_supplicant"
wpa_supplicant_eth1="-Dwext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf"
wpa_timeout_eth1=60
associate_timeout_eth1=60
config_Earth_eth1="192.168.178.28 netmask 255.255.255.0 brd 192.168.178.255"
dns_servers_Earth_eth1="192.168.0.1"
routes_Earth_eth1="default via 192.168.0.1"
dhcp_Earth_eth1="release nodns"
#config_routes_eth1="192.168.178.28/24 netmask 255.255.255.0 brd 192.168.178.255"
#dns_servers_routes_eth1="192.168.0.1"
#routes_routes_eth1="default via 192.168.0.1"

fallback_eth1="dhcp"
iwconfig_eth1="mode managed"

elmarotter@masterserver ~ $ sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

I've been doing this for ages. The only config needed for this is in /etc/conf.d/net.

You seem to have eth0 and eth1. Which is your WiFi interface? I think eth1 but your description is a bit confused.

In wpa_supplicant you set keys etc but the IP address (DHCP) is only set in conf.d/net

Cheers
Jon

eth1 is my wifi.

I tried static ip in /etc/conf.d/net
But I do not get an ip when I try that. And I don't want to use DHCP.

Did you also try
Code:
config_Earth
instead of
Code:
config_Earth_eth1
?

Works for me ... ;-)

This is a follow-up from: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-890978.html

I can't seem to reply to that forum thread anymore. Sorry if this is not the way to do this.

config_Earth did not work.
swimmer: could you send me your config of /etc/conf.d/net and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf?

Sure 8-)

/etc/conf.d/net
Code:

### WIRED ###
config_eth0="dhcp"

### WIRELESS ###
modules_wlan0="wpa_supplicant"
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf"

## Thuis
config_<my_essid>="192.168.1.15/24"
routes_<my_essid>="default via 192.168.1.1"
dns_servers_<my_essid>="192.168.1.1"
dns_domain_<my_essid>="xmsnet.nl"

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="<my_essid>"
        psk="<my_password>"
        proto=RSN
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=CCMP
        group=CCMP TKIP
}

swimmer: thank you, sir!

That example of yours helped to fix same issue in my environments. Indeed, it is documented in the example file, but I did not think it must be followed exactly. You simply showed us path!

Thank you too, swimmer. I was trying to get a solution for the same problem, and somehow I managed to skip the instrucctions in "net.example" until now.

Regards
