When I do the same thing with my Windows desktop with PuTTY, everything's fine. However, my Ubuntu laptop can't seem to find it. It always replies with no route to host. I also tried it with a USB 3.0 to ethernet adapter, but the result hasn't changed.

I asked this question before. That reply solved half of the problem, but now, it won't connect at all.

  • Are you sure your Ubuntu laptop and the rpi are connected to the same physical network and they are configured with unique ip addresses on the same ip subnet? – paj Jun 8 '17 at 15:47

Have you tried this?: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=138631 ... at page 4 i found solution. Therefore my problem was little bit different i have SSH via ethernet but not via WiFi dongle. Still hope editing /etc/ssh/sshd_config...with the line "IPQoS cs0 cs0" helps you.

This works for me (Ubuntu 17.10).

  1. Find out the name of your Ethernet connection.

$ ifconfig

enp0s25: [...]

The name is enp0s25

  1. Change the IP address to the same subnet as the Raspberry. So if your Pi has the address you might use

$ ifconfig enp0s25 netmask

  1. ssh

Turns out I have to set the wired connection settings to link-local in order to do it.

Can't believe it took me this long.

One thing to note: if you don't have a static IP, run an # arp-scan to the interface your Pi is connected to.
