Does your config.txt exist with dtoverlay=dwc2 in it?
Also try an “ipconfig /all” on pc to see if your usb network is up. Do you have an usb interface in config panel-network interface?

config.txt exists with the dtoverlay=dwc2

You seem to not get an ip adress.
Your usb adapter should have 192.168.44.1
You can try to set it manually. In your network parameters, find the usb adapter and try to set a fixed ip with 192.168.44.1 mask 255.255.255.0 , gateway and dns not important.

did you try a ‘setgw’ command once connected?

yep and i cant connect to internet
and wifi isnt working , should i activated somehow?

I think there is a tab on your usb network adapter in windows to share the internet connection
As for wifi, this is normal linux configuration. Check your /boot/wpa_supplicant.conf configuration to make sure you have a proper ssid and password
Ie replace homenet with your ssid and psk=’yoursuperpassword’
You might need to restart twice.

i am wondering where to change the default wifi password,
wpa_supplicant.active, or the wpa_supplicant.conf ?
