I have a BBB(Beagle Bone Black) and here is what I did:
First I flashed this firmware onto my board: BBB-eMMC-flasher-debian-7.4-2014-04-23-2gb. Next I connected my BBB to my WIN10 Laptop via
USB then I was able to connect successfully to my BBB using Putty (over 192.168.7.2). And everything went well.
However as I wanted to download some packeges such as x11vnc and I do not have a direct free LAN network I wanted to
use my win10 Laptop as LAN bridge. (My Win10 PC get WLAN from the university and shares it via a LAN to my BBB). Well
So I just connected my BBB via USB and via LAN to my Laptop. However when I bridged the LAN my VNC server suddenly
stopped. That is why I pluged the USB cable of the BBB of and restarted it and I tried to connect my Laptop via SSH over Putty
with my BBB again. But that was not possible:
I am now not able to connect via SSH to my BBB anymore. However it is showing me in my PC the board(when connecting via USB). But even opening Start.htm
does not work (the first two steps remain orange - I cannot connect via a Browser to 192.168.7.2 - the website is not loading at all)
I also tried to flash different images onto my BBB. - I was never not able to connect via SSH.
I also tried to connect with another PC to my BBB - this however worked fine. But I need my Laptop to connect with the BBB
I hope you can help me!
Many thanks in advance!
