I currently use some powerline terminals to connect my laptop which controls my imaging kit using Windows and Ascom over Ethernet to my home router.
I am a new user of Astroberry on a Raspberry Pi and would like to connect the Pi in the same way ie Ethernet to my home router (the Wifi has insufficient range)
I can connect the Astroberry image to my home wireless network and it works fine using VNC. However I cannot get it to connect using wired Ethernet to my router even without my powerline terminals using a simple Ethernet cable
Can anyone help me set this up please ? - I am new to Linux.
Could you provide details on "cannot get it to connect using wired Ethernet to my router"?
Do the ethernet port leds blink after connection?
Does your router assign a dynamic IPs to new network devices automatically (i.e. with DHCP)?
Is RPi visible on network devices list in the router administration panel?
Can you ping RPi's IP address?
BTW. Please don't double post. I removed another post for the same topic.

Thanks for your response Radek
Apologies the double post occurred because I thought the first one had gone astray !
Anyhow I will do some further investigation into your questions about the IP layer and post back with the answers
However I presume that provided all is well with the IP connection to the router I should be able to connect in the same way as with Wifi ie by typing astroberry.local into my browser address bar ?
