I have been using my RPi3B+ for around a month now, with Raspbian desktop (it came with the package, I didnt install it myself). Since I dont have a display, I use SSH to connect to it with my laptop (XPS 15 9560, running windows 10 1803). The laptop doesnt have an ethernet port, so I have to use dongles. I have two, one is Eth to USB type C (has Gigabit), and the other is Eth to USB type B 2 (doesnt have Gigabit). Up til now I have always used the Type C adapter, but as of one week, I cant connect to the pi anymore, but I can via type B. Since I also download stuff from the internet, I would really like to make the type C dongle work again.
Heres how I connect to my pi:
- power the pi, wait until it boots (the green/yellow/ ACT led doesnt blink anymore)
- connect the pi via ethernet to my laptop
- Then I either:
- wait until I see packets from wireshark and search for a packet with the pi's mac address (filter on: eth.addr[0:3] == B8:27:EB)
- run in cmd arp -a | findstr b8-27-eb
- connect via ssh to that ip address
I noticed that for some reason pi after getting an ip address, gets into a loop of asking whether an IP address is available and not moving on (pic attached). Whenever I try to ssh into/ping the broadcasted IP, the destination is unreachable.
What can I do?
