  2. Scroll to the end of the file and add the following lines, making sure to replace the values for interface”“ip_address”“routers” (gateway) and “domain_name_servers” based on your LAN settings:

#Ethernet static IP configuration

interface eth0

static ip_address=192.168.1.111/24

static routers=192.168.1.1

static domain_name_servers=192.168.1.1 8.8.8.8

Note: LAN installs are supported on properly configured RFC 1918 private networks, i.e. 172.16.0.0 /10.0.0.0/192.168.0.0 IP range.
