So I run a 3d print lab for students at my college and we have 15 printers most of which are ultimakers. i want to try out the octoprint setup so i can monitor the printers when i am not there. i bought a Raspberry pi 3 B+ and have ruined 4 micro sd cards so far rewriting the octoprint image. So far i can write the image and plug into the pi. the problem im having is finding and connecting to my colleges internet. Ive tried using an Ethernet cable and the pi doesnt seem like its connected. Im also having an issue with finding the ip address for the pi if it is connected. I would love some assistance with this problem.
So far i have written the image using win32 and i left the network settings alone.
(if i did connect to the wifi i would have to log in with my student credentials. not much of an issue but i dont know if that is possible)
I have the pi on and the printer connected. The red light is steady on and the green light blinks at first then turns off.
