Can Not Connect My Pi
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:20:51 PM »
Yesterday everything was working fine. I unplugged my Pi overnight & today when it rebooted I can not connect through my home computer. I type in the IP address of 192.168.0.46 which is one of 2 the Pi gave me & I get the below screen.
What is wrong?????
Brand new to Pi3

Is your computer on the 192.168.0.xxx subnet?
Using LOR (mostly SuperStar) for all sequencing - using FPP only to drive P5 and P10 panels.

Did the Pi give you that IP yesterday or today?  If yesterday, then it could have a new IP today if your router decided to hand out a different IP via DHCP.

Today it gave me 2 192.168.0.46 & 192.168.0.213
Both of them time out & will not connect

You are dealing with a non computer literate old man so I have no idea what you are talking about

Do you know what the IP is of your computer?  If not, open a command prompt and type "ipconfig".  That will tell you.

Do you still have the Pi plugged into your network or are you trying to access it over WiFi?  If it is not plugged in, plug it in and see if you can get to it.

Looks like the problem maybe solved.
I changed back to the shorter Ethernet cable I was using yesterday & everything worked using 192.168.0.213
Who would have thought a simple cable would make a difference.
Thanks for everyone's help.

Bad cable can do it every time!  Glad you got it fixed.

This is only the start of your issues.  You have two Ip addresses on the same network, i.e., the 3rd number in each address is the same.  One is probably from the eth0 interface and the other from the wifi.  If you unplug the cable you will not be able to connect via wifi.  You can solve that problem for now by setting up the eth0 to be DHCP and have a static Ip only for your wifi.  You should also be able to connect to your Pi without using the Ip address and use instead one of the following - FPP/  or  FPP.local  or FPP.local/.  If you change your DNS name in the network settings from FPP then just substitute that name for FPP in the prior examples.

Most folks have the eth0 eventually plugged into a controller or to a switch or router for the show at which time you will probably need to change your network setup for eth0.  But that can be put off until you want to connect to a controller.  You have my number if you need to call me.

Length of Ethernet cable shouldn't have been an issue. Whether 6 feet long or 100 feet long you should have connected. Check your connectors.
