WiFi will not save/connect

Post by KG5TDB » Mon Jan 04, 2021 2:45 am

:?: Using 4.1.2 I-star got in trying to add home WiFi. Add info for home info n password clicked save n connect. Nothing happens I know password is correct. Tried the WiFi builder file on Ed card in the "boot" partition. Will not show any networks. Any ideas? Thanks. KG5TDB 73's

Any ideas?
Is your network NOT using WPA2?

Is your network SSID hidden? (not broadcast)

Also is your network a 5 Ghz network, and you have a RPi Zero W that doesn't have 5 Ghz capabilities?
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.
