Resolve Issues with Losing Network Connection After Reboot


When you reboot your Linux® system, the network connection changes you make in the Configure Network step in the Radio Setup wizard are reset and you lose the host-to-radio connection.

The network configuration of the host IP address is persistent on Windows® systems.

Possible Solutions

To retain the host-to-radio connection during a computer reboot on Linux systems, make the network connection changes to the host computer persistent by editing the /etc/network/interfaces file.

  1. Edit /etc/network/interfaces to define settings for eth1.

  2. Use an IP address on the same subnet as your radio (that is, with three initial octets that match those of your radio) and a unique value for the fourth octet. For example:

    auto eth1 
    iface eth1 inet static
