Let me give you a bit of background so you can understand better how to help me out.
I'm a student renting a room in a house in Australia. I'm new to this sort of stuff but have a keep aptitude to learn.
We have wireless internet which I use with my laptop.
I have no screen cable of HDMI. I would like to remote access it through my laptop and use the laptop's touch pad and keyboard to experiment with the Pi
I have the Raspian image file on the SD card (8GB) but have not performed a boot up as I have no screen to see what I am doing.
I know my computer's IP address (it has 2 different IP addresses. 1 starts with 127. and the other starts with 10.
How can I set up PuTTY to connect with the Pi when I have no idea it's IP address since I can't access it?
The router is not mine but I do know it has the label bigpond so I assume that's the brand name.
I looked at tutorials but all suggested using IP with 192. and 167. but that's not what my IP starts with.
I have a Ethernet cable.
Thank you for your assistance.
I can be a little dumb at first but after the start up stage and basic understanding of the system I progress a bit faster.
