Any ideas. I am not much of an expert on networking, so am at a loss for how to force it to reconnect to the original IP address. I am also assuming that this is the root of my problem connecting.
UPDATE: Nevermind. I was using 08 at the end of my IP instead of 8 which was preventing me from ssh'ing to the plug. Once I did that I used the following to force the IP address change (found by googling)
I found it here http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-change-ip-address/
Code: Select all
# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.5 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
