Status "not connected" when I set static IP
Hi everyone. I've been trying for a long time to get this fixed but haven't been able to.
Using Recalbox 7.1.1 in my Rpi4 I set the Wifi zone to CN (since I am in China) and everything works fine and it shows connected under settings. Changed to static IP, set everything and it connects (I can ssh, share through my network...) but under status it will show "Not connected". I've tried adding China DNS servers to /etc/dhcpcd.conf but changes won't stay after reboot.
Any way to solve this? Thanks

@Zing Thanks for the answer. Don't know if it is the same problem since I am connected and get an IP but Recalbox is showing that I am not connected (so things like the time update won't work and maybe the system update). I'm still guessing a DNS problem of some kind.
If I connect with an ethernet cable it will also show connected. The only case where it says not connected is with static ip and wifi
@colibris79 I know that this is not the same case, but sometimes it serves as a reference.
I'm not sure what may be causing the problem, but apparently you either configured something wrong, or there is some kind of incompatibility that is causing a conflict, you need to analyze all the variables involved in the configuration, not only of Recalbox, but also the modem configuration.
Here in the forum there are several topics that you can check:
@Zing you are right. Messing with my router could help. I'll try setting the static IP from the router itself. I'll post later
My guess is that is has to do with being in China and DNS problems (not a problem itself but how the Great China Firewall works)
Well. That worked. Giving an static ip from my router (instead of changing recalbox.conf) worked. Not I have an static ip and showing "Connected"
