usb/ethernet ip address selection
I have a usb device that is setup to use a networking interface.
When I connect the usb device, ifconfig automatically shows a new interface "usbX", and it has an assigned IP address, e.g. "192.168.X.1" - yes, the "X" is the same number between the address and the interface name.
Each time I connect the usb device, it gets a different ip address...
192.168.9.1, 192.168.10.1, etc (actually the device address ends in .2, the PC is .1)
How do I configure this device to always have the same address? Or maybe it's more accurate to ask, how do I configure linux to always assign the network address with this device?
