    first of all thanks mate!you rock!

    something i missing definitely…i am trying to connect my pi with pi-tail with usb tethering in my PC.
    i have replaced the correct /boot/cmdline.txt with /boot/cmdline.ether
    i am connecting my pi0 from usb port to my pc’s usb port
    and i am trying to connect with ssh at 192.168.44.254 , but it cant connect….

    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?

    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.

    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 ?
