I am trying to SSH into my Raspberry Pi 3 via my Win10 PC both connected to my router via WiFi.
What I did was that I assigned a static IP from my router's config page to both my PC and my Raspberry Pi, and the as I tried SSHing into my Pi using the IP I assigned, puTTY just kept reporting.
Session timed out.
While trying to ping via command prompt-
Destination host unreachable.
However no packet loss is reported.
Anyways, what I noticed, is that if I connect my PC to the router via a LAN cable, the sshing works fine, I can ssh into my PI without any problems.
I even tried sshing using my external IP, I was able to ping it but puTTY reported
Software closed connection.
Now the thing is wiring my laptop to my router in order to ssh into my Pi is a bit restricting, also I would like to ssh into the Pi via other devices, My Lumia 525 for instance, and I can't plug a LAN cable into that.
This is network issue I think.
Any ideas how to solve this?
Interestingly, ipconfig tells that while connected via LAN my IPv4 address isn't actually the one I set for my PC. But when I connect via WiFi, the correct IP shows up. Subnet is the same.
This network is really getting confusing now.
