I’ve received my BrickPi board today, and I am trying to understand its networking.
When I go through the following instructions, it seems that BrickPi3’s Raspbian For Robots does not get an IP address from my router like ev3dev does. Instead, BrickPi3’s OS acts as a DHCP server and expects that my PC get an IP address from BrickPi3’s DHCP server:
If my understanding explained above is correct, then I need to disconnect my PC ethernet cable from my home network and connect it to BrickPi3’s network. That means I won’t have internet while I am working with BrickPi3. The approach is very productive since I like to have internet access while I program.
Is there any way to have BrickPi3 joins my home’s router network so I can connect to it with any PC or laptop connected to my router?
