My Pi 3 is having trouble maintaining SSH or FTP connections. On resetting the Wifi connection (going to the network utility, selecting the same network, and putting in the password again), I'm able to connect to it temporarily but it stops working shortly after.
Both the SSH and FTP connection seem to reset at the exact same time. After they reset, I'm unable to start a new SSH or FTP session until I reset the connection. This is a brand-new Pi and it wasn't having this issue initially.
I've rebooted it several times and get this error:
ssh: connect to host 192.168.1.8 port 22: Operation timed out
for FTP I get
Could not connect to server “192.168.1.8”.
Pinging it also results in:
Request timeout for icmp_seq 27
ping: sendto: Host is down
I've checked that this is the correct ip address with
ifconfig each time and I can open websites on my Pi while unable to connect from my laptop.
I'd appreciate any help!
