The wifi settings keep randomly changing to various IP addresses.
In order to have this drive available on my home network, I’ve changed the IP to 192.168.1.200. This drive has changed its IP address spontaneously to any of these at different times: 192.168.2.200, 192.168.60.1 and 192.168.1.1
Each time I have to guess at which IP address it chose, and then when I go to change the settings back to my chosen IP address, entering the wifi password doesn’t always work. The most recent changes have rendered the password I entered unusable. I can no longer connect to my passport wireless, again. This is the 4th or 5th time this has happened.
Once I do a factory reset, then reconfigure everything again, in say, 2 hours, and have it all back to the settings I want, is there some files I can chmod -w to make them unchangeable by whatever random system processes that are doing this?
How can I stop this from happening. It is getting really frustrating.
