I’m having trouble connecting to my BPi using VNC. I am using a pre-setup SD card from Dexter Industries. I edited the SD card by adding the “ip=169.254.255.200” to one of the files as instructed by the “getting started with the brickpi” YouTube video. After this, I plugged in a mouse and keyboard and monitor to connect to the wifi using the wifi dongle that came with the starter bundle. I know the connection and internet works, since I was able to browse google. When I type in terminal “sudo ifconfig” to see the IP, it says under wlan0 that “inet addr:192.168.##.###” instead of the other one I set. If I try connecting to either of these IPs using VNC the connection times out.
Have I made an obvious mistake or are there common mistakes that could do this?
