Jetson Nano headless connection problem


I have just started experimenting with the jetson nano. I have started the 8 hour course, but I am stuck at the setup of the headless mode.

My problem starts when I try to connect to the jupyter notebook on my laptop. For starters, it’s difficult to simply open the notebook. Then, each few seconds, I get en error message saying that the kernel can’t connect and to check my network connection or the kernel server. Therefore, I can’t run any code. I tried many browsers.

I have tried the same process on the laptop of my girlfriend, which is running on the same network, and the kernel stays connected.

One thing that I have found is that my computer does not see the nano correctly. When I check in my peripherals, the computer sees the nano as an unkown device, while on the computer of my girlfriend the nano is seen as a tegra device

As additional information, both the computers are running on Windows 10 and I bought the nano with the kit on Sparkfun.

Do you have any ideas on how to make the nano visible by my computer?

Now it works well!
