In this post i see some solutions, but the last one just above, could you explain how to apply it ? I am not used to Linux so i don't know how to apply this.

sudo reboot
the directory didn't exist on my RPi, so I created it with the command (in that case you will have to execute this first):

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Wifi Setup

Sat Apr 16, 2016 4:44 pm

I'm having a similar issue getting WiFi up and running on the Pi 3, but instead of it simply "not working" or just not being able to connect, I'm actually getting kernel panics:

I'm running a headless Jessie Lite (the 2016-03-18 version), connecting over SSH via wired ethernet, and have been following the instructions posted here.

If I reboot after adding my credentials to the `wpa_supplicant.conf` file, I consistently get a panic at around 50 seconds: https://gist.github.com/rknLA/1c700422c ... 9405712848

I also get basically the same thing after editing the file and trying to restart wpa_supplicant: https://gist.github.com/rknLA/50c1d24cb ... c79eee0b32


The wifi router is running 802.11n at 5GHz, on channel 48, and I am also in Germany, so I had changed the "GB" in the conf file to "DE" as well..

Has everyone else here been seeing kernel "Oops"es like this, or is it "just not working" for you?

@rkn,
Did you expand the file system using raspi-config after installing Jessie Lite?
It's a necessary step, but I don't see it in the instructions you referenced.

Also, it's usually better to open a new thread for a new problem. If you have already expanded your file system, I would recommend you open a new thread.

Hope this helps,
Dave.

Is there a possibility to add an external - more powerful antenna to the internal wifi on rpi3.
I noticed that the reach of the internal wifi is very sensitive to the powersupply of the rpi and voltage drops cause unpredictable behavior.

It's been done.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3 Wifi Setup

Tue May 03, 2016 7:46 pm

Hi,

I've some problems with my RPi3.

They can't see my Wifi SSID.

I've found the problem, it was the chanels from my wifi's antenna.

The RPi3 don't support wifi chanel above 11.

The 4 antennas i've at home, only 1 was visible.

Is it a kernel problem, or a limitation on the Pi3?

Thanks

(Sorry, i have a bad english)

The Pi 3 does support channels up to 13. On the initial Pi 3 Raspbian OS it did not, but subsequent releases did, or alternatively update the system.
Also see this post onwards :

On my raspberry PI 3 I have 2016-05-10 Raspbian Jessie Lite, and trying to start the access point daemon there are error messages:

Code: Select all

The two messages above "Failed to create..." and "wlan0: Could not connect to kernel driver" are worrying. Did others experience this, and how did you fix it?

RP3. About 3 weeks out of the box, updated last about 2 weeks ago.

Wifi was working fine (apart from not picking up one of the primary networks, but haven't dug into the reasons for that yet so could be a multitude of reasons) up until about a 4 days ago when I couldn't get it to connect to the local network. We have 2 networks close enough for us to see a weak signal from network 1 (N1) when in the region for N2. I was originally using the rp3 in the area for N2, not seeing it, but able to connect to N1. Now I'm actually in the region for N1, apparently connecting (according to the wifi icon & the fact it asks for the password occasionally), but not able to browse the net, update Raspbian or any such thing.

The brcm folder is present and fully stocked (as far as I can tell), have checked networks via terminal and everything seems to be the same as when I started using the rp3. I've been searching through all the forums I can find to work this out, I'm reasonably technically competent (so can follow instructions), but a bit of a noob when it comes to programming, linux, & using terminal (that's why I bought the rp in the first place).

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers

I just bought a Pi 3 and am suffering from similar Wifi problems. Running the latest Jessie distribution, Wifi stops working after a few minutes of inactivity. I already tried disabling power saving, but to my surprise it didn't help.

After the Wifi connection dropped, I SSH'd to the Pi via Ethernet to investigate. Running "sudo iw dev wlan0 info" freezes all my SSH session on the Pi for a couple of minutes. Since this affects all sessions, it appears that either the CPU utilization goes through the roof or whatever's happening also affects the Ethernet connection. Eventually the command succeeds and prints some wholly unsuspicious device info.

Once I did the above, the Wifi connection is working again. Until the next time it fails, that is... :?

I appreciate the GUI tools probably set things up automatically, but I'd rather just edit /etc/network/interfaces or whichever file(s), instead of having to install a GUI.

I already have 'iw dev wlan0 set power_save off' in /etc/rc.local :-)

It's Jessie, not Jessy. In case you were wondering why the name is Jessie, Raspian is a modified version of Debian and the current release of Debian was named Jessie so Raspian carries over the name from Debian!

Hello,
I have a brand new Raspberry Pi 3 and I cannot get it to recognize that wlan0 should exist.

Ifconfig -a does not show it.

/etc/network/interfaces has not been modified.

I've run the Dougie-approved command in this thread for installing & updating & rebooting. Here is what I have afterward:

Looking at the menus in sudo raspi-config per this post viewtopic.php?p=923216#p923216, I do not have the option for Device Tree in Advanced Options.

Looked around and found this, but it is t1ts-on-bull useful:

It's 3AM, the last time I tried to post, the browser crashed. I'm mentally drained, I feel like there is something I'm missing other than a recognized wireless nic. I have tried every single suggestion in this thread. None of the suggestions work, just like the wireless nic. I will check back tomorrow.

I have restarted the networking, did ifdown and ifup, manually added the network settings to wpa_supplicant.conf (and restarted the networking).

Still nothing.

What am I doing wrong or where am I not looking?

Whats the secret to get wifi working on the Pi3. I have upgraded and installed to latest versions. Wifi is on wlan0 but I am unable to scan for networks. How do I setup the wifi?

1. Don't use WEP security.
2. Write your /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file by hand using sudo nano to edit it.

Reboot after you think the supplicant file is correct. There's a gazillion examples on here.

Then you are not running Raspbian. What OS distro is it?
