Code: Select all
iwlist wlan0 scan
should get wpa_suppicant going if you have it configured in /etc/network/interfacesifdown --force wlan0;ifup wlan0
For what it is worth, mine in a Rev 1 board with unmodified polyfuses and it works just fine with the edimax wifi dongle.MrRicheyRich wrote:Hey guys,
I've just solved the problem! I soldered a 10-ohm resistor across each polyfuse (labelled F1 and F2) next to the USB ports. This means I can now get more current to each USB port and the Edimax dongle runs first time using WPA gui in Raspbian.
I believe version 2 and above have removed the polyfuses???
Let me know if anyone else's problems get solved that way.
I am interested if (and which) of those examples for open connections work or don't work, so do report back. After thinking about it, one other thing that you might want to add is the "priority" for each of the network connections. Normally the wpa_supplicant file is read from top to bottom and the first working network connection is used. This can be changed by adding the priority parameter. The larger the number, the sooner the network is matched and used. Your post shows an example of its usage. If you use the same priority number for multiple networks, they are then prioritized based on security policy, signal strength, etc. One caveat to all of this is if scan_ssid=1 is used; in that case the priority is ignored and the file is read from top to bottom.Shawn333 wrote:Thanks PJC123
This has given some confidence that what I am doing is nearly right.
Will try the last bit (to do with connecting to McDonalds etc) and report back. As you commented this might well be what provides the solution I have been looking for.
