i followed the Generic X86-64 guidelines to install Home Assistant on a laptop.
I went the host OS route. The laptop doesn’t have an ethernet connection but i used a USB-C dongle with an ethernet port.
Booting from the USB into Ubuntu worked fine. There i downloaded Balena Etcher and flashed the internal HD of the laptop. That all went fine too, rebooted the computer and it booted into Home Assistant. The only problem is that it doesn’t connect to the network.
It doesn’t seem like HA sees the ethernet connection, it only sees the internal wifi adapter.
I’m still on the computer that has HA installed on it. I can’t reach the Web UI yet.
Is there a way to make it see the ethernet connection or let me connect to the Wifi using the CLI?
This is only a test machine to play around with so it’s not a big deal if it’s not optimal. This is a test case to see how well this would run before i dedicate one of my Intel NUC’s to it
Any help would be appreciated
