IP address changed by itself


Since yesterday my IP has changed without me doing anything on my side. any idea why ?



With exactly zero information provided to work from, no.


What information do I need ?

Where your IP address originated from for starters. Are we talking a static IP? If so it was set static on your RPi or your DHCP server? Is this a dynamic address that you just assumed would never change?

pro tip


sorry for delay, yes is IP static from RPi. It’s strange, because it hasn’t changed since the installation on my SD cards (3 years ago).

I find it strange that it has changed lately

What did it change from and to? I don’t remember seeing others reporting this issue. Is there maybe another device on your network that was using this address (ie you set it to a static ip that was in the same range your DHCP server was handing out), or a change in how you connected (switch from wired to wireless)?

For three years I have been using my RPi through the wifi of my box. I use WinSPC to transfer files. my host name has not changed since. And I haven’t made any particular change
