I just got my GoPiGo that I got from your kickstarter campaign.
I carried out following steps:
1)Assembly according to your mission 1 book
2)Inserted the SD card dated with: 2015.11.09 (the SD card slot carries the number: 50515CC)
3)Connect the battery pack
4)Connect the Ethernet cable to the raspberry
5)Inserted the wifi dongle
6)Switch on the power switch – power led on green steady
7)At the raspberry there are two led’s. One red and one green. The red light appears and stays on. The green light blinks a couple of times and then stays off.
8)Connect the Ethernet cable to the PC. No lights on the Ethernet connection appears.
9)Download the bonjour print service for windows.
10)Try to ping the raspberry without success.
Then I disconnected the raspberry from your dexter module and I connected the raspberry via mini usb directly to the electricity. No change. The led’s of the Ethernet cable keep off. They never light on. Even when I try to connect the HDMI cable, there is no way to get the raspberry connected to my computer.
I rechecked the SD card slot. It clicks when I put in the card. This seems to be normal. I never took out or put in the SD card when the raspberry was energized.
What shall I do to successfully ping my raspberry?
Thank you for your help.
