WIFI CONNECTION ON RASPBERRY PI

by caveatemptor1948 on Thu Dec 31, 2015 2:21 pm

Thank you for your support. We can connect to the internet with the Raspberry pi using an ethernet cable, but we cannot connect using an edimax wifi connection with my Linksys router. Please advise.

Thank you.

We have this tutorial https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruits-raspberry-pi-lesson-3-network-setup/setting-up-wifi-with-occidentalis and there are more ideas from Google. What have you tried and what results are you getting?

We have tried the adafruit lesson three several times and searched on google many times. Do you have any more hints?
Thanks.

Can you post the output of dmesg and ifconfig?

we had trouble with the wifi, all the diagnostics looked right but it wouldnt connect
we then looked at the wpa_supplicant.conf file and noticed that the wifi password was
all caps, while we always use lower case, so using nano, we manually fixed the file, rebooted
and voila, it worked,

so the wifi gui takes lowercase and puts it in as upper case, and that introduces the bug.
