I have the latest Raspbain, a Raspberry Pi 3 with built-in wifi and the machine is running. BUT how do you configure the wifi? I find no GUI tool for this and when I try the command line process method from this site it does not work because when I issue the command iwlist wlan0 scanning the machine says "wlan0 doesn't support scanning". My question is that a user with only basic knowledge is NOT going to be successful with the current configuration and descriptions to make the wifi on a PI 3 work. Has anyone gotten this to work with the latest raspbain 9-23 release? I have never gotten wifi to work on a PI since i bought my first "b".

Anyone with a solution that they have used to make this combination work?

Bob

LEFT click on the networking icon in task bar. (Up & down arrow icon or 2 computers icon in older revisions)
Find your SSID and click on it.
Enter your PSK
The icon should change to 'blue waves'
