board pinging the computer

The arp -a and arp -s is set under Windows not the Zynq board.
Must sure you got my meaning right.
Generally it is bounded by after 1st connections.

From your screenshots your Ethernet is not connected or not configure. I would expect to see your Ethernet connection on your PC with the static IP address you configured for it.

In both your screenshots ping isn’t working.

Check you followed the instructions.

If you are having problems with the direct connection to your PC, are you able to connect your board to your network? You might find this easier as you won’t have to configure anything. You will need to find the IP address of the board which you can do with ip a as you did above.

I am not sure if I got your meanig right but here is how I understood it:

typed in windows cmd:
C:\Users\Michu>arp -a

and then go to PUTTY:

Your board is not able to assign a valid IP address from ifconfig so this is why it is not working.
So you didn’t do the IPV4 setup accordingly.

Check subnet is in bound aka both host and device are in 192.168.2.xxx
Check any thing are missed during the network setup procedure.

Here is a thing after I run board I should see “undefined connection” here:
image
but any of my computers don’t see it

so I go to adapter seetings and setup this like here:

Sadlly i have no acces to router

The screenshot from your PC network interface shows the Ethernet cable is unplugged.

Can you make sure the cable is plugged in then run the following again and post the output:
On PC: ipconfig /all
On board: ip a

Try ping again from board to PC and from PC to board.

Cathal

The easiest way is to check all IP in the current subnet and manually forcing 1 by replacing 2.99 on the board to the same subnet with your assigned IP.

What I guess is that you are using WIFI on your PC and the board is plug to a wall or ethernet socket?

The Ethernet cable is plugged, I checked is cable okay and are the Ethernet ports in computers Okay by connecting two computers using same ethernet cable and it was working, computers could “see” each other. I start thinking that ethernet port on the board is not working. Btw. if I power the borad only one diode on the ethernet port is lighting, but I see that there is one more diode should it be also lighting?

This looks like there is come problem with the network interface on your PC. E.g. cable isn’t connected or there is some problem with the cable:

I can’t offer any more help or suggestions unless you can resolve this. You can try check the LEDs on your network ports yourself to see if they indicate anything.

As an alternative, you could try use a USB dongle and connect the board to your WiFi and then connect to it from your PC over WiFi.

Cathal

What I see is that your PC connecting to WIFI.
So you got to understand there are config when WIFI is connected Ethernet will be disable or not prioritized as packet T/R
So disable the WIFI ipconfig again connect the board and tell us what is the result meantime ARP -a if you got a Ethernet and WIFI adapter connected should return two sets of lists

Disable the WIFI just enable the Ethernet adapter and connect the board under CAT-5 or above cable to discuss what is the result.

No offense modulator sometime won’t really help or provided experienced debug details as mostly only get bug from user or developer like us.

Make sure your PYNQ board is set to the subnet of 192.168.153.xxx then see what is the result.

I’m not sure what you mean by this.

No offense modulator sometime won’t really help or provided experienced debug details as mostly only get bug from user or developer like us.

The Ethernet connection is showing as cable unplugged. Connection to the board will not work until this is resolved.

It shouldn’t matter if the board is also connected to WiFi so you shouldn’t need to disable it.

Cathal

What I am saying in nice manner is modulator not thinking in an non engineer ways aka expecting people to have backgrounds.

Why the host PC is connected to WIFI and the board is connected to the ethernet will not work (when both devices are in the same subnet)?

There are nothing to do with the PC connection method as long as it is in the same subnet.

Sadlly it did not help

I will try with USB dongle after weekend

Now you dont even have any network connection devices:
Open explorer: Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections
Disable other unnecessary connection devices remain 1 and only 1 than you plan to connect to the board subnet.
ipconfig and check the current host ip address i.e. 192.168.1xx.xxx
Then goto the board and then manually assign an ip address to 192.168.1xx.[free # 2 to 254].
Then ping on PC and board vice versa
