Hi, I just got my BrickPi, so this is all beginner’s pains (although I already had a Pi)
I burned an image with the Dexterified Raspbian onto my card, and I followed the instructions in getting-started.
I assigned an IP address to BrickPi that wouldn’t conflict with all the stuff we have on our network (192.168.0.181)
I connected an Ethernet cable between my portable running Win8 and the BrickPi. All the lights on the BrickPi get turned on, but Putty won’t connect. Am I supposed to be able to ping that IP address? Cause ping doesn’t work either.
I hooked up the whole BrickPi to my former Pi station. It boots (it’s hooked up to a keyboard and a monitor) but does not connect to internet (it used to, when it was a standalone Pi with the standard Raspbian). This is a direct Ethernet connection to my router, not Wifi. But with BrickPi, it goes nowhere.
However, when it’s connected to that station, my laptop detects it. I’m running “Who’s on my Wifi” which actually detects everything, whether wifi or direct connection. It’s showing a new connection at 192.168.0.181 and it is indeed the Pi. Putty still won’t let me in though. I keep getting “Connection timeout”
Networking is my weakness. I don’t understand it. I’m stuck.
