I have a Debian 9 netbook here. Because I have an unusual setup
here, I need to use manual IP address configuration. I used the
default network manager to setup the static IPv4 and IPv6
addresses on the wifi interface. When I start the system, all
works fine, and the correct IPs and routing information as I
setup via the GUI are in place.
However, when there's a network upset (most probably due to the
router rebooting, or some other wifi disturbance), the static IPs
are gone and are replaced by a DHCP assigned IPv4 address. This
causes a number of issues, breaking connectivity with the BBS
that is running on the system.
In the good old days, I'd have done a total manual configuration,
and this would have stuck, but I decided to use the tools
provided for 2 reasons:
1. To work with the new ways of doing things, rather than
figting the system.
2. To simplify the configuration of the wifi (i.e. not having to
mess around with wpa-supplicant directly).
Anyone seen this behaviour? And better still, anyone have a

I'm not a Debian expert, but I do use a couple of Raspberry Pi's
running Raspbian (which is basically Debian Stretch). What has
always worked fine for me is to edit /etc/dhcpcd.conf and just add
the following block on to the end of the file:
That's it. Obviously adjust IP's and maybe the interface name to
