    Silly !!!
    Do you know what IP you set it for ?
    Did it conflict with another device
    If so set your PC to an IP on the same subnet and remove all other devices except PC and Pi

    If not download Pcp burn to sd card then start again

    You MAY be able to change IP from the terminal

    hi jouteur,

    You may need to connect a monitor and keyboard and run $setup

    This How-to shows the start screen of setup. Select "Static IP" instead of "Wifi" of course.

    That's the way it works.

    During the boot process it reads newconfig.cfg and writes wifi configuration to config.cfg. To show that it has been used, newconfig.cfg is renamed to usedconfig.cfg (instead of just deleting it)

    Anyway "setup" should be able to fix wifi as well as static IP.

    regards
