"Most men live life's in quite desperation" Not my quote. Toshen, you are a philosopher of Quantum Entanglement. The vast Universe is instantly connected together. Einstien called it Spooky.
Toshen, I followed your instructions. I have used all your Http's and can not reach to reach "Set UP".

What do you see in your browser after you type http://pi-star/ and press Enter?

Okay, well absent knowing more of the details, all the questions I asked previously that you didn't answer, I can't offer you any more help. What I suggest is that you find a ham who lives near you who uses digital voice and sit down with him or her to do some hands-on troubleshooting. My guess is that either your wpa_supplicant.conf file is getting translated to a different format after you download it and before you copy it to your Raspberry Pi, or there is something about your home WiFi network that is blocking the connection. Good luck!

What is the name of your WiFi network? (SSID)

Toshen,
You droped me like a wet noodle. I have no hard feelings towards you.I understand your frustration with me, not having all the details. You do a great job of trying to help others.

My Wi Fi is a ATT home net work.

We need to know the SSID (name) of your WiFi network, not the carrier/provider. Sometimes the name of the network will cause problems with connecting to it from pi-star.

Jeff,
I used SSID ATTPkZSCTA with my Password to enter Wi Fi Network. I thought the SSID is the Wi Fi Network shown on all my Wi Fi devices. Iphone.Ipad and Windows Laptop. If this is not my SSID, How do I get it? Please understand that all of us are not Computer geniuses.

Gene,

OK, that is what I needed to know. Sometimes spaces or non alpha-numeric characters in your SSID causes problems with the raspberry pi connecting to your wireless network. I don't see anything in your SSID that would be an issue. My SSID has a dash in it and it works fine on three raspberry pi zero w's. Sorry I can't be of more help.
