I hope that I am not annoying you but I don’t know where else to turn. I recently purchased 3 pocket beagle bone boards for Christmas LED display projects that I am working on. One board has a short in it I think but the other two boards are working but I can not seem to access internet or ethernet on them. I have tried the Youtube tutorials and also online boards suggesting to share internet via my MacBook or Windows PC but whenever I turn on the sharing for the beagle bone the DCHP changes the IP address to a 169.x.x.x and I am not able to SSH into the board. I am a novice at Linux and programming. I purchased a EDUP wifi adapter and also a 4 port hub but I can’t seem to get them to work with the pocket beagle, it doesn’t recognize anything connected. Can you please offer me some assistance and tell me what exact click boards or adapters actually work with the pocket beagle and where I can purchase them if you know. I have ordered Mikroe click board wifi BLE from Mouser.com but I am not sure it will fit the pocketbeagle and no one is answering their phone or live chat to help me.
I have used raspberry pi boards in the past but won’t to try the pocket beagles because of the compact size but they seem to be extremely harder to use. I am using a MacBook Pro 2011 with OS Sierra 10.12 but I also tried with a Windows 10 PC and still could not get internet sharing to work.
I have kernel 4.14.108-ti-r113 installed on the SD card inserted in the pocket beagle; I can’t update the kernel or use sudo apt-get update because I have no wifi access on the pocket beagle.
