Connecting Alienware x15 R1 to ROSbot 2R via SSH

I have an Alienware laptop which doesn’t have an ethernet port. I have an USB A to USB C cable. I tried connecting the ROSbot end with USB A and connected the USB C end to the Alienware laptop. But the network is not showing up in the laptop. I need to confirm if I need to connect the laptop and the bot with the ethernet cable or connecting with USB A to USB C is fine?

Hello @Ashwin_KJ and welcome to Husarion Community!

By default, network connection will not work via the USB interface. For this you need custom software which is not supported by us.

We suggest using a USB connector with an Ethernet adapter (if there is no Ethernet input on the laptop, use two USB-Ethernet adapters).
