    Problem with setting static IP.

    Done static route through GUI and on reboot I get no WAN. Also my “eth0” shows up as “enp2s0” not sure how it got that way. (wired only, wireless off, set IPv6 as Link Local Only) Does Linux Mint 18.3 require IPv6 to connect to WAN ? The only way to restore my network is set to Auto DHCP and restart.

    Thank you .

    Your process was clean and tidy and it worked.

    May I ask: I have taken over a slightly mis-configured system in my new position, and found some ifcfg-*** files that have quotation marks around some of the parameters.

    I am wondering if these quotes have an affect on the system, or if they are simply one persons preference?

    Please see below:


    I don’t find any problem with the quotes but wonder why they are there.
