Unable to connect to 192.168.7.1

Recommended Posts

I have BBB connected via USB, using PuTTY on windows

In PuTTY,
Host Name (or IP address) : 192.168.7.2
Port : 22

When I load session with above settings,
then if we want to connect back to the PC, I type - 

ping 192.168.7.1 -> 20 packets sent, 0 received, 100% loss

Always packets are sent but received is zero always

Ps - I see this step in Derek Molloy's Beaglebone- Getting Started - Windows USB Network Adapter Setup Tutorial. Cant go ahead, I am stuck. He mentions the PC appears as 192.168.7.1 on network and BBB is 192.168.7.2
But when I try myself, zero packets are received

Can anyone debug this problem?

Help!  I have the same problem and it is giving me fits.

 

I can ping my BBB from my computer (Windows 8) [ping 192.168.7.2] just fine but cannot ping my computer from my BBB [ping 192.168.7.1].  I'm using the provided USB cable and have scoured the internet for help.  Any idea what it could be?

 

 

After running ifconfig on the BBB:
