How to install JetPack 3.0 by wireless network

Hi, I’m using wireless network to install Jetpack 3.0 for TX2, but it said that “Finished Flashing os Determining the IP address of target”
Did anyone see this before and how could I solve it? Thanks
My host pc used VMware and Ubuntu 16.04 x86, it connected the network by wireless network
Sincerely!

It’s not officialy supported to connect the Jetson and PC over wireless network to complete the post-flash install steps. Instead, please connect them over Ethernet cable, either directly or through a router or switch.

However if you wait long enough when it says “Determining the IP address of target”, after the DHCP detection times out, it will prompt you to manually enter the IP address of the Jetson. It may work then, but is not as reliable over wireless.

So I can connect TX2 and host PC directly by Ethernet cable not router? Thanks
Sincerely

Yes, you can connect them directly via a spare ethernet port on the host PC. I do not recall a crossover cable being necessary, either.

When you are running JetPack, select the second option during this dialog:

I am trying to use the JetPack 3.2 installer with a TX2 over wireless since my host does not have an ethernet port. I have some hope that it is possible, despite the views on the forums, based on the logic that a local network connection is used to transfer the files and thus should not need to know if wifi or wired option is used. This thread makes it sounds like it might be possible, but not recommended.
…It may work then, but is not as reliable over wireless.

My goal is to only install the “drivers” because the CUDA samples on the TX2 are complaining that no driver could be detected. The fact that the CUDA 9 Samples are on the device shows I was able to install some content with a wireless connection. I am hoping someone can understand the logs (I wish I could attach to this message). I noticed some "/dev/null"s but I’m not sure if the log is from only the most recent attempt or all attempts and I ran Jetpack several times, getting further sometimes.

I avoided a flash on this device, and thus did not connect the USB data cable, because I am gunshy after I put a different TX2 device in an unusable state (another thread coming) when attempting to use a different host to flash that device.

@dusty_nv Your 2nd reply and 2nd case in that; my desktop has only one network card, can I complete post flash setup by connecting them in this config once flashing is complete and it prompts me for manual ip or retry?

and before that let them in the 1st config.

FYI, WiFi isn’t supported, but I have heard of it sometimes working. The mechanism for automatically finding the IP address is designed to work once after flash through wired. On the other hand, you can run JetPack at later dates and choose to just install software without flashing…in which case you must manually enter an IP address. WiFi is never set up automatically, but if you have already manually configured WiFi then there probably isn’t any reason you can’t at least attempt a WiFi install. On the other hand, it is easier for WiFi to briefly fail and break a long download.
