Static IP when default gateway keeps changing


I upgraded my phone to android 11 and I noticed that when using hotspot on my phone to connect and control my raspberry pi, the default gateway on hotspot changes every time I enable it.

How do I set a static address on my pi when default gateway 192.168.x.x where the X numbers change every time?

Must be new feature of android 11. Android 10 always had same default gateway hotspot.


I don’t think you can, but you better of asking you phone manufacture or on Android Community for support.

This is beyond the scope of osmc support.

Thanks Tom.

Ok I’ll ask Xiaomi see if they can do anything. If it’s an android 11 feature I doubt they can do much.

Thanks anyways
