I just got myself a second Beaglebone Black and with the first one I’ve never have this kind of problem.
I installed the drivers as per the Getting-started guide, PuTTy, connected the beagle using the USB cable and setted the sharing connection (my pc is connected via wifi) properties between my notebook (Windows 8.1) and the bb.
Following Derek Molloy book I tried with the serial connection first, and I’m able to (at least) log in:

echo “nameserver 22.214.171.124” >> /etc/resolv.conf
i try to ping 126.96.36.199 but i get this error:
From 192.168.7.2 icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable.
I tried using the SSH connection as well and in this case i got a PuTTy fatal error: Network error: connection timed out.
Any idea why is that?
Thanks in advance.
