As soon as I change /etc/network/interfaces to any other address ie
192.168.x.x, 172.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x I have no internet connection.
And if I change iface eth0 inet dhcp to iface eth0 inet static
and give an address of 169.254.1.10 the connection ip address is
changed to 169.254.1.7
From my readings last night I believe a dhcp server may not be the
answer and I should consider some sort of router software.
