static domain_name_servers to the IP of your router (default gateway) from step 1.

You can get this range by looking under the router configurations page and checking for the range of the DHCP addresses. This means, that if the DHCP range goes from
192.168.178.99 you’re good to go with the IP
192.168.178.100 for your Raspberry Pi.Add the following to the
# Configuration static IP address (CHANGE THE VALUES TO FIT FOR YOUR NETWORK)

Done, from now on if you type in your browser umbrel.local will always go to that IP.
Remember this procedure is to access your node from your home LAN, not from outside of your LAN.
From outside, you should always use the Tor onion address of your node.
