Re: pi zero w wpa_supplicant

Sounds like good advice. Will it automatically switch access points once configured or do i have to restart the pi?

Re: pi zero w wpa_supplicant

I then opened notepad++ and copied the wpa_supplicant code from HawaiianPi and put it on the boot partition like I had before. Made sure it was a .conf file as well. Also ad...

Re: pi zero w wpa_supplicant

so I was able to sorta get it working.

I changed Country to country and US to us. when I did this in the Pi3 it worked like a charm.

disconnected the ethernet cable and it was working via wifi.

I take the card from the 3 and put it in the zerow and no dice.

Re: pi zero w wpa_supplicant

whenever I try to configure anything network related using the sudo raspi-config menu it says "Could not communicate with wpa_supplicant". So I cant pick my ssid from a list or change my country code or download or update / upgrade anything.

Re: Changing Wifi networks from the command line interface

So I have a similar situation. I am planning on setting up my pi using an isolated network (hotspot from my phone) which will have just the pi zero w and my windows laptop connected to it. It will be running Unifipi which looks to be based off of the lite version of Stretch. Once the preliminary set...
