RasPi/Stellarmate->ethernet->win10 laptop, no connection was created by DrawsACircle

I simply cannot connect to Stellarmate via ethernet, I’ve managed it once but that was after some fiddling with the laptop network.
Stellarmate does register some kind of connectivity (hotspot dissappears), the laptop gets an ip address, 169.254.45.xx, but Stellarmate has 169.254.9.68 - no connection.
Anyone with a suggestion to what’s going on - I’m going out of my mind, every time I have some clear skies, I struggle with software/hardware (raspi/Stellarmate) issues spending more hours getting things working instead of taking pictures :(

Did you remember to START by using the Stellarmate APP on your phone or tablet? SM needs that FIRST in order to configure networking.

In StellarMate, go to Network --> Connection --> Edit Connections (Last option)

Remove all Ethernet Connections (Auto Ethernet..etc), then add a new connection. Select Ethernet.

Go to IPv4 table. Add this IP:

IP: 192.168.1.2
Subnet: 24
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.1

On your PC, edit your IPv4 setting in network manager (click on ethernet adapter --> properties --> IPv4 settings) or something like that.

Select Manual, add IP information:

IP: 192.168.1.1
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.1

After you save, you _should_ be able to ping 192.168.1.2 which is the permanent address of StellarMate now. Use this address every where.

Thanks Jasem, I managed to connect last night, but not a direct connection, I had to put a router between my laptop and the RasPi. Even then I had a hard time establishing a connection. I actually had both the Stellarmate hotspot and a wired connection at the same time. I even created static IP adresses in the router, that diddn’t help much, the RasPi MAC was listed twice with two different IP addresses 192.168.x.x and 10.42.x.x - I’ve never seen that before)
I’ll follow your guide tonight.

I just tried the changes you suggested Jasem. When I ping Stellarmate, it does reply, but quite often I get a request time out.
The laptop cannot connect to the Stellarmate Web manager or Stellarmate via the kStars running on the laptop. I've disabled every network connecton but the specific ethernet connection, even the Stellarmate HotSpot.
Then I tried to open the webmanager on Stellarmate, nothing happening, Chrome keeps waiting forever. Something seems to be wrong with Stellarmate.
I updated Stellarmate to the latest release yesterday, I only have the sw release from a year back when I purchased Stellarmate (release 1.2.9) - is it possible to download later releases?
Another thing, the Stellarmate Hotspot rarely shows up when the RasPi is not connected to a netwrok, I can restart it over and over again without anything happening. Is there any "no network" timeout before it's activated?
