Anyone have any idea why I have to unplug my Ethernet cable from router after I reboot raspberry in order for it to reconnect to the static IP address that I assigned it? If I reboot the Pi the log into FPP I can't access the Pi from the web server on my laptop. I have to go the my router, unplug the Ethernet for about 20 seconds, plug it back in then I can access from web server. I'm so confused... Any help is greatly appreciated.

What you are describing happens when you have wifi and wired ethernet on the same network.

Is there anyway to fix this without uninstalling fpp from the pi and reinstalling it? I've tried to just unplug the wifi dongle from the pi and it still is doing the same thing.

Are you using host name or IP to connect to FPP?
