BeagleBone Black C Not Recognized by Computer

Basically I’ve got a BeagleBone Black Revision C that I’m trying to connect to my computer.
I’m running Debian Linux all up to date on my laptop. I’ve got the BeagleBone plugged into the power and a usb cord running from the Beagle to my laptop. When I go to the URL nothing comes up. It just tries to load forever.
When I plug the board in, nothing is showing up in dmesg either.
Any ideas?

I have the same issue, more or less. See “You can’t brick it”.

Then reflash:
