I am busy setting up a new project. I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W mounted on a DIN plate from an accessory company. What I'd like to do is have the device pick up an IP address via its WiFi connection, and then do that step "Can the Pi Zero W present a static IP address on Ethernet?" (Subject from topic is in the quotes)
it would then be connected to a Router who at that end has a static IP address which is in the same group, such as Pi Zero would be say 192.168.0.1 and the router would be 192.168.0.2 both with matching netmasks. Ideally I had thought of using and setting up a DHCP server for Ethernet but the instructions for it on Intel Linux are too confusing.
Incidentally connected to the router on one of its three Ethernet ports would be another Pi Zero with a USB attached Ethernet device. The router is actually one of these "Linksys-Cisco Linksys Broadband Router RT31P2 - Router (RT31P2-NA)" from Amazon. Incidentally it is locked for Vonage, but for further work I'm trying to get a CIsco PAP2-NA device. In which case a SIP server plus required things would be installed onto the Pi Zero.
I had thought of using the instructions that the group at Adafruit wrote for turning the Pi into an access point, in which the WiFi connection would pick up an address, and then its DHCP service would be used to talk to that router, but the instructions were never updated to accommodate a Pi Zero W. This is in response to a group of individuals who asked me to prove that a Pi could be used for managing and delivering VOIP sessions.
I left out using Asterisk figuring that would be too complicated for this group.
For now I shall let all of you consider my problems.
