Thank you for your input. It did it again this morning: For some reason the IP changed back to the ".98" and it failed mid-game. I simply went to the internet settings and changed it back, restarted the DreamPi and was back online in ~3 minutes.


So I now know what it has been the whole time, and how to fix it. But it appears as if my system is still changing the IP address automatically.

did you make your router to bind specific ip address for Dreampi's MAC address?

My friends AT&T gateway kept doing a similar thing. Even though I would set the DreamPi to a static IP address, for whatever reason after a couple power cycles (of the DreamPi), it would switch back to the .98

To fix that from happening, I changed the DHCP pool to only hand out address from .2 up to .80. That way the router will not assign an IP address above .80 making the .98 address always available. Seems to have worked for a couple weeks now, without causing conflicts again. I still have .98 DMZ, so all protocols can pass.
