Guys this is killing me.
So i have the Edimax , as well as the Asus USB-N10 (both work "out of the box")
on the latest Wheezy 10-28
Logitech K260 wireless mouse keyboard combo (have also switched out to some generic wired HP combo that never seems to have an issue)
1A micro adapter for power
And for some reason that is totally escaping me, i STILL cannot get wifi up and running.
yes i know this is supposed to work through the wpa_gui but i am not getting anything useful from here, and all posts with wifi issues are at least 2 months out of date, so if ya'll can help me at least understand what is going on that would be great.
when i load the wpa_gui i get adapter wlan0, and a list of nearby networks (i am in an apt that has shared wifi, so i cannot control my distance from the router sadly.)
it attmepts to connect to any network i send it to, and have tried WPA, WEP, etc. right now it is a wpa2-psk and i get a status of "Scanning....4 Way Handshake...Scanning...Associating...etc it reconizes the ssid, and clains to sit out a bssid, but jumps between these settings too fast to do anything with.
it just runs this loop until i attempt to force it to a different network (im running a 2009mbp with SL, and EVENTUALLY the point of my project is to connect the pi to the ad-hoc network i can create with OSX), wpa_gui gives me a last message of -signal 15 received, could not get status from wpa_supplicant. at this point, the network field goes blank, the dongle stops flashing, and i have to restart to get any life outta it.
i ve followed all of the tutorials i ve seen on how to set this up, but i ll lay down the info that i have.
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf exists, seems to be running, and recognizes the given networks in the area, and the psk applied to each (for the ad-hoc, i ve left it open)
i noticed that the default header for this file seems to reference a file DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev....which apparently doesnt exist in /var/run/
anyone got any light to shed on that? im new to pi and linux but im a quick learner if someone can point me the right way.
/etc/network/interfaces has been changed to
iface lo inet loopback
iface etho inet dhcp
auto w lan
iface wlan0 inet manual
iface default inet dhcp
with the asus adapter in i have tried modprobe r8712u with no distinguishable results.
im all out of ideas guys. i am currently using a model 1 board that was ordered in july, and i read on another post that someone resolved an issue with the edimax by soldering a 10k ohm resistor to the usb module....which i would like to avoid if possible.
if anyone has any suggestions, or can walk me through what is going on (or supposed to be going on) please lemme know.
i have limited access to a wired connection (as they do not have them in this building) but i can get to one if absolutely needed.
i recently wrote a paper explaining the power of this community for the raspberry pi, full of intuitive and helpful people. dont fail me now when i need you most!
