after you setup your Protonetbox you can login to the console via SSH and change the IP address with the tool “netconf”.

See here, for instructions to login via SSH on a windowscomputer or a Mac. soul2 (stable/74) 

 ~ $ netconf

Please follow the instructions on your screen.

After exiting the tool, you have to restart your protonetbox soul2 (stable/74) 

 ~ $ sudo reboot

Please be sure, that you take the right settings. In the case of an incorrect IP configuration it can be that the box becomes unreachable​ over LAN. Please enable the WiFi as long as you make settings to the LAN IP configuration​ or be sure you have a monitor and keyboard that you can connect to your Protonetbox!
