. Installed Raspbian stretch on Raspberry Pi B+ (v1.2). I am bridging the connection between my wifi and LAN.

  • RPI IP:
  • LAN IP on PC, Windows 7:

The VNC connection drops as soon as i bridge the wifi with ethernet on which is connected my RPI

  • Your bridge is on Windows 7? This isn't really a question belonging to Raspberry Pi. – Ingo May 10 '18 at 9:31
  • I also tried sharing using the internet sharing property(Network and sharing center-> change adapter settings->(choose wifi adapter)right click to properties-> On sharing tab->Enable sharing with LAN), but i get the same result, i don't really think its an issue of the bridge.But i'll be glad to understand my misunderstanding, that's why i am asking for explanation. Thanks – user1234 May 10 '18 at 9:36
  • I don't know what to explain? We are on Raspberry Pi. Your bridge is on Windows 7. I don't know anything about Windows. I'm using Linux. I assume the network connection on the raspi is working. May you ask this question in a Windows forum? – Ingo May 10 '18 at 9:51

You cannot bridge Link-local address.

Obviously neither of your interfaces has an actual IP address.

  • I also tried sharing in normal for as shown in my last two posts, and i have the same issue. i do admit that before bridging both interfaces have IPs, and after bridging only the bridge has, but i thought this is the way bridges work. I believe it has to do with ports. – user1234 May 10 '18 at 10:57
