Can't set static ip

Hi,

I'm trying to set a static ip. I went through all the steps listed here
http://www.suntimebox.com/raspberry-pi- ... k-3/day-5/

I did this twice and both times I rebooted the pi is stuck on "waiting for network"

Any ideas? I don't even know how to exit from it

Re: Power Supply Test

With a EDIMAX wireless USB adapter and hdmi plugged in I get 4.5volts using a RS components power cable.

Is this ok??? or is there something suspicious here!!

Cool! so after shutting down XBMC, the Pi is completely off!

I don't have a power strip with on/off switch, i suppose unplugging from the wall will have to do!
