MKR WIFI 1010, Static ip no work

Hi, I’m trying to use my new device with static ip.

When I use this example, it works well.

#include <SPI.h>
#include <WiFiNINA.h>

#include "arduino_secrets.h" 
///////please enter your sensitive data in the Secret tab/arduino_secrets.h
char ssid[] = "JAZZTEL_30DE";        // your network SSID (name)
char pass[] = "mykey";    // your network password (use for WPA, or use as key for WEP)
int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS;     // the WiFi radio's status

IPAddress ip(192,168,1,222);

// Specify IP address or hostname
String hostName = "www.google.com";
int pingResult;

void setup() {
  // Initialize serial and wait for port to open:
  Serial.begin(9600);
  while (!Serial) {
    ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only
  }

  // check for the WiFi module:
  if (WiFi.status() == WL_NO_MODULE) {
    Serial.println("Communication with WiFi module failed!");
    // don't continue
    while (true);
  }

  String fv = WiFi.firmwareVersion();
  if (fv != "1.0.0") {
    Serial.println("Please upgrade the firmware");
  }

  // attempt to connect to WiFi network:
  while ( status != WL_CONNECTED) {
    Serial.print("Attempting to connect to WPA SSID: ");
    Serial.println(ssid);
    
    // Connect to WPA/WPA2 network:
    status = WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);

    // wait 5 seconds for connection:
    delay(5000);
  }
  
  // you're connected now, so print out the data:
  Serial.println("You're connected to the network");
  printCurrentNet();
  printWiFiData();
}

void loop() {
  Serial.print("Pinging ");
  Serial.print(hostName);
  Serial.print(": ");

  pingResult = WiFi.ping(hostName);

  if (pingResult >= 0) {
    Serial.print("SUCCESS! RTT = ");
    Serial.print(pingResult);
    Serial.println(" ms");
  } else {
    Serial.print("FAILED! Error code: ");
    Serial.println(pingResult);
  }

  delay(5000);
}

void printWiFiData() {
  // print your WiFi shield's IP address:
  IPAddress ip = WiFi.localIP();
  Serial.print("IP address : ");
  Serial.println(ip);

  Serial.print("Subnet mask: ");
  Serial.println((IPAddress)WiFi.subnetMask());

  Serial.print("Gateway IP : ");
  Serial.println((IPAddress)WiFi.gatewayIP());

  // print your MAC address:
  byte mac[6];
  WiFi.macAddress(mac);
  Serial.print("MAC address: ");
  Serial.print(mac[5], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(mac[4], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(mac[3], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(mac[2], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(mac[1], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.println(mac[0], HEX);
  Serial.println();
}

void printCurrentNet() {
  // print the SSID of the network you're attached to:
  Serial.print("SSID: ");
  Serial.println(WiFi.SSID());

  // print the MAC address of the router you're attached to:
  byte bssid[6];
  WiFi.BSSID(bssid);
  Serial.print("BSSID: ");
  Serial.print(bssid[5], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(bssid[4], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(bssid[3], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(bssid[2], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.print(bssid[1], HEX);
  Serial.print(":");
  Serial.println(bssid[0], HEX);

  // print the received signal strength:
  long rssi = WiFi.RSSI();
  Serial.print("signal strength (RSSI): ");
  Serial.println(rssi);

  // print the encryption type:
  byte encryption = WiFi.encryptionType();
  Serial.print("Encryption Type: ");
  Serial.println(encryption, HEX);
  Serial.println();
}

But, if I change the ip to static the change is not recognized, using this example does not support the static ip, it continues using dhcp.

    Serial.print("Attempting to connect to WPA SSID: ");
    Serial.println(ssid);
    WiFi.config(ip);
    // Connect to WPA/WPA2 network:
    status = WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);

    // wait 5 seconds for connection:
    delay(5000);
  }

  printCurrentNet();
  printWiFiData();
}

void loop() {
  Serial.print("Pinging ");
  Serial.print(hostName);
  Serial.print(": ");

  pingResult = WiFi.ping(hostName);

  if (pingResult >= 0) {
    Serial.print("SUCCESS! RTT = ");
    Serial.print(pingResult);
    Serial.println(" ms");
  } else {
    Serial.print("FAILED! Error code: ");
    Serial.println(pingResult);
  }

  delay(5000);
}

void printWiFiData() {
  // print your WiFi shield's IP address:

  Serial.println();
}

void printCurrentNet() {
  // print the SSID of the network you're attached to:
  Serial.print("SSID: ");
  Serial.println(WiFi.SSID());

  // print the MAC address of the router you're attached to:

  WiFi.BSSID(bssid);
  Serial.print("BSSID: ");

  Serial.println(rssi);

  // print the encryption type:
  byte encryption = WiFi.encryptionType();
  Serial.print("Encryption Type: ");
  Serial.println(encryption, HEX);
  Serial.println();
}

I have also called the method WiFi.config after the method WiFi.begin, but then nothing works.

Any idea? Thank for all.

To use a STATIC IP you may have to RESERVE it with your router and it must be within the subnet of the existing network.

I have not tried with the library you are using but it worked with the WiFi101 Library.

Are you using an MKR1000 or an MKR1010 ?

Hi @

Could you please open an issue on GitHub to track this? Issues · arduino-libraries/WiFiNINA · GitHub

I just tried it the same way you did, and it worked for me. I also added a screen shot.

Addendum: The IP used by me is guaranteed not in use. If your IP is in use by another device, there are of course difficulties.

Yes.. you connect,, the problem is when you try do a ping to external host like google.es, the ping crash.

It's as if the DNS will not work.

I use mkr 1010 to this code but the mkr1000 have same problem.

R0BERT0:

Did you just ping google.es, or did you ping the IP too?
If you can ping 2a00:1450:4001:81f::2003, it’s probably DNS.
Then I would suggest next, a ping to your DNS server.

I tried it and it works for me, see also my screen shot.
