No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

Thu Feb 08, 2018 2:10 pm

I've done this morning a "sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get -y upgrade" on a Raspberry Pi Zero W and from have been able to witness during the update that certain firmware packages have been installed as well.

Once the update has been completed, a simply rebooted the device with a "sudo shutdown -r now ; exit", however the device never comes up again (meaning, I cannot access it via SSH and cannot find it in my Wifi client llist).

After a power recycle, I see the green activity LED blinking, and then after a while it stays steady greem.

Still, I cannot connect to the device, and a wireless device scanner installed on my PC does not find the Raspberry Pi Zero W in the list of Wifi clients (note: it's been always connected fine to my Wifi network in teh past, and nothing has changed here).

I've followed the sticky post viewtopic.php?t=58151#p850218, and can confirm with Raspbian Desktop on my PC, it can recognise the device as a GPIO expansion board, when the SD card is removed from the device.

I went ahead and formatted the SD card and burned again the latest Raspbian Stretch image file of November 2017 available under https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian, created an "ssh" file and the "wpa_supplicant.conf" file with the same configuration content for my Wifi network (as before), inserted the SD card into the Raspberry Pi Zero W card reader, and plugged the device to power with the usual power adapter.

From the green activity LED, I can conclude that it is booting normal. However, still no access via SSH to the device, and my Wifi radar does not show up the Raspberry Pi Zero W as a Wifi client.

Í've done several power recycles, still the same issue: no Wifi connectivity to the Raspberry Pi Zero W.

I removed the SD card form the device, and plugged it in the PC, and see that the "ssh" file and the "wpa_supplicant.conf" file are no longer available on the SD card's top level directory. This means, during 1st boot these files have been copied over to the OS partition.

I formatted again the SD card with the formatter tool https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/format ... etupEN.exe and then flashed again the image file with the image writer tool https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32d ... t/download, have put again the "ssh" file and the same (!) "wpa_supplicant.conf" file on the top-level directory of teh SD card, and gently inserted the SD card into the Raspberry Pi Zero W's card reader.

After powering on, the same situation, Raspberry Pi Zero W not in the list of my Wifi clients and I cannot ping or connect to the device :-(

Question: What have the Raspbian Stretch packages updates done today to my device?

Just done the update on my pi zero w running stretch lite no problems at all.

As with any problem like this first thing is post your wpa_supplicant.conf file.

Here the contents of the "wpa_supplicant.conf" file masking confidential information:

Code: Select all

network={
    ssid="MyWifiNetworkSSID"
    psk="password"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}
I read the post viewtopic.php?f=63&t=203508&start=25#p1270662, which confirms that as part of the OS packages updates, the firmware is being updated as well.

What implications do the firmware updates have with today's Raspbian packages updates on my Raspberry Pi Zero W device?

Another point: I've started again with a plain vanilla image file on my SD card. Thus, ought to be able to work from there without any OS packages updates offered today, or?

The easiest option may be to temporarily connect your Zero W to a monitor and keyboard then you can directly interact with it.

Your wpa_supplicant.conf file is missing the first 3 lines

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
country=GB

network={
	ssid="MyWifiNetworkSSID"
	psk="password"
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}
you may need to change the country code..

Re: No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

I have experienced the same issue today.
- and have currently not solved it.

A1: Updated (apt-get update/upgrade) Raspbian on my rPi-ZW.
A2: After a reboot the wlan0 interface is missing.
A3: I can only connect to the rPi-ZW through a microUSB-to-Ethernet-adapter.

I grabbed new SD-card and flashed a fresh image of Stretch (not Lite) (the 'November 29th 2017' version).
B1: Added ssh-file to /boot/.
B2: Connected the microUSB-to-Ethernet-adapter and booted up.
B3: ifconfig showed only 'eth0' and 'lo' interfaces.
B4: After shutdown I moved the SD card to a Raspberry Pi 3 and performed an update (apt-get update/upgrade) through Ethernet.
B5: On the rPi-3 all the interfaces are available (including 'wlan0').
B6: Moved the SD card back to rPi-ZW - but still no 'wlan0' interface.

BTW:
My wpa_supplicant.conf already contained the first 3 lines from above.

Sorry, I've forgotten to mention the 1st 3 lines in my previous post about the "wpa_supplicant.conf" file contents. In my case they look like this:

Code: Select all

country=GB
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

Strange, just tried apt-get update/upgrade on my Pi 0 W and then rebooted and wifi is working OK. Running Raspbian Stretch Lite upgraded to kernel 4.9.77+ #1081.

apt-get upgrade installed new versions of packages

Code: Select all

firmware-atheros firmware-brcm80211 firmware-libertas firmware-misc-nonfree firmware-realtek libtasn1-6 pi-bluetooth
I am connected to my Pi 0 W via the built in Broadcom wifi using SSH from my Win7 laptop. The Pi 0 W also has a second wifi adapter connected to the USB port, a TP-Link TL-WN725N, which also shows a connection to my network.

Re: No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

Thu Feb 08, 2018 5:26 pm

I started again: This time I used a Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device, which uses the same CPU as the Raspberry Pi Zero W device. Flashed the Raspbian Stretch "full" image of November 2017 (not the "lite" one) on a newly formatted SD card.

Created an "ssh" file and the "wpa_supplicant.conf" file with the same configuration content as before.

Put the SD card it in the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device and started just fine and could connect to the device through its Ethernet interface hooked up on my LAN.

I've done the usual sudo "apt-get update ; sudo apt-get -y upgrade", and updated all the OS packages as published today (8 February 2018), I have checked that the same “/etc/wpa/wpa_supplicant.conf” is intact as copied during the boot (which is the case!).

After shutting down the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device, I ejected the SD card and gently inserted it into the card reader of the Raspberry Pi Zero W device. I powered up the Raspberry Pi Zero W device, saw some LED activity during its booting, and also the LED of the Wifi adapter was flashing temporarily (meaning a Wifi client wants to connect).

Waited a while, the green coloured LED of the Raspberry Pi Zero W device stayed steady on all time, no flashing whatsoever.

With different Wifi scanner applications on my PC, I could find the Raspberry Pi Zero W device, could not ping it with the previous registered IP address, and no connection possible with SSH.

Thus, I removed power from the Raspberry Pi Zero W device, removed the SD card and inserted the same into the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device, which came up when powered on.

Connected through the LAN interface to the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device, I examined the messages entries in the “/var/log/syslog” file, and could find the following:

From these error messages, I can determine that after today's update, the device cannot connect to an AP anymore when using Wifi :-(

TLDR: Works for me

I have been meaning to work on my Zero W so powered it up, connected headless via telnet using the on-board WiFi. Last time it was used was in September so quite a lot to update and upgrade. Did that, took a deep breath, then 'sudo reboot'; it reconnected to my router and I'm back in. No problems so far.

For the record ...

There is no upgradeable firmware on the Raspberry Pi computer itself. All firmware is stored on the SD card, so writing a fresh image to the card will remove any changes the update applied (including firmware). If your system worked previously but no longer does, even with a fresh image, then either your Pi has gone bad (unlikely unless you've been mucking about with GPIO and connected something wrong), or the problem is external to the Pi.

Have you made any changes to your network setup since the Pi last worked?
Have you made any changes to your Pi setup since it last worked (moved it, added or removed accessories, new PSU, etc.)?
Are you trying to set a static IP for your Pi0W (and if so, why)?
Have you verified the sha265 checksum of your Raspbian download?
Do you use Etcher to both extract and write the SD card (write the .zip file directly)?
Have you tried a different SD card?
What are you using for a power supply (make/model/volts/amps)?

What "LED of the Wifi adapter" are you referring to?

If you can find it on your network with a network scanner, then it's connected. And why would you attempt to use a "previous registered IP address" if you now have the correct address from your network scan? Also, if you have powered down the Pi without a proper shutdown, SSH key generation might have gotten messed up, so start over with a fresh image to be sure.

And for the record, I just did a full update/dist-upgrade on my Pi0W running the November 2017 Raspbian Stretch, and it's still working fine. So the problem isn't Raspbian. Sorry you're still having trouble. Hopefully with some additional troubleshooting we'll be able to get you up and running again.

Flashing the Raspbian Stretch image of November 2017 on the SD card (without any OS packages updates) works fine with the Raspberry Pi Zero W device and gets conncted to the same Wifi AP device. A SSH session works fine!

Thus, IMHO I may be able to conclude that the Wifi AP device does not have any problems, and nothing has changed in the past pertaining to its setup. The SD card ought to be fine, too, as it works just fine with my other Raspberry PI devices.

Flashing the Raspbian Stretch image of November 2017 on the SD card (without any OS packages updates) works fine with the Raspberry Pi Zero W device and gets conncted to the same Wifi AP device. A SSH session works fine!
In your OP you wrote ...

I went ahead and formatted the SD card and burned again the latest Raspbian Stretch image file of November 2017 ... However, still no access via SSH to the device, and my Wifi radar does not show up the Raspberry Pi Zero W as a Wifi client.
So did it not work, but is now working, or what ? I am utterly confused.

Re: No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:46 pm

Okay, let’s start again as I’m getting confused with all your valuable feedback.

The PSU used and the SD are OK and they’re also working fine with a Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device. Thus, I may exclude any hardware problems here.

I flashed the SD card again with the Raspbian Stretch image of November 2017, just put the “ssh” and the same “wpa_supplicant.conf” files on the top level directory of the SD card.

Gently put the SD card in the reader of the Raspberry Pi Zero W device, and powered it on with the same PSU as used before with the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device.

The green LED is flashing, thus some activity is going on there (i.e. partition resizing), after I while I can discover the device with my Wifi radar application on my PC and can connect to the Raspberry Pi Zero W device (maybe I missed to mention this somewhere in the initial post, but hey, the device always worked fine for me in the past) using SSH.

As proof, here the relevant entries of the “/var/log/syslog” file:

I reboot the device, once the all above cited OS packages updates have been completed. Some LED flashing activity is going on, then the LED stays steady lit.

Waited a while, however my Wifi radar cannot discover the device, a ping or SSH with the same known IP address not possible.

I unplug the PSU, remove the SD card from Raspberry Pi Zero W device, and insert it on the card reader of a Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device.

Powered it on, and it comes up without any problems allow me to connect via SSH to the device using Ethernet LAN.

Hence my red herring comment, its the lines after were your pi gets its IPv4 address that you want to look for in your failed attempt to connect to the wireless network, starting at Nov 29 02:57:31

Yes, they may not be related, however I'm not getting any further line entries in the "/var/log/syslog" file that allows me to compare.

This said, the line entries in the "/var/log/kern.log" file are different.

I think I understand now; what you are saying is that lines which would be expected to appear in the log are not appearing.

I can't explain that. I can only add that, from what I recall when I looked yesterday, I get very similar to what pcmanbob posts above, including "carrier lost", "deleting address" and the like, but eventually a "wlan0: offered 192.168.0.x" and the rest.

That is on a Zero W. Stretch which was previously installed, last booted in September, 'apt-get upgrade' yesterday, after a reboot.

I would agree with pcmanbob that what you are seeing is probably a red herring, not indicative of a problem; is what would be expected. It's what isn't there which is inexplicable at this time.

Perhaps the full syslog from "wlan0: starting wpa_supplicant" needs posting so so it can be compared to one where it works to see where any subtle differences may lie.

Re: No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

Fri Feb 09, 2018 2:43 pm

Hi,

I've been running my PI 0 W without problems but I have the built in Broadcom wifi and another wifi adapter connected to the USB port. I disconnected the USB wifi and the Pi 0 W wifi still connected to my network OK.

I then did an update/upgrade and my Pi 0 W then refused to connect to my network. Very strange. I then noticed the the update/upgrade installed a new version of the Broadcom firmware.

So started from scratch and created a new SD card using 2017-11-29-raspbian-stretch-lite. Copied wpa_supplicant.conf and ssh files to the boot partition and plugged the SD card into my Pi 0 W and it booted and connected to my network.

I then did an update/upgrade and rebooted the Pi 0 W and it refused to connect to my network. The update/upgrade installed 41 packages including a new version of the Broadcom wifi firmware.

I then re-installed 2017-11-29-raspbian-stretch-lite on the SD card again and the Pi 0 W was able to connect to my network again. I then did update/upgrade but this time did not install the Broadcom firmware. After rebooting the Pi 0 W connected to my network without problems, so seems like an issue with the new firmware.

I reconnected the USB wifi adapter to the USB port and rebooted and both wifis connected to my network and I then updated the Broadcom firmware and rebooted. Strangly both wifis connected to my network. I then disconnected the USB wifi and rebooted and the Broadcom wifi refused to connect to my network again. Really wierd. Reconnected the USB wifi and restarted the Pi 0 W and both wifis connected to my network. Really,really wierd.

Checking the logs and they looked similar to yours with apparently issues with IPV6. My network uses an old Windows domain controller and it doesn't like IPV6 so I decided to disable IPV6.

I took the SD card from the Pi 0 W and mounted it on another Pi and edited file /etc/modprobe.d/ipv6.conf and added the line

Code: Select all

blacklist ipv6
to the start of the file. I disconnected the usb wifi on the Pi 0 W and plugged the SD card back into the Pi 0 W and restarted it and the built in wifi connected without issues.

So it seems disabling IPV6 fixed the problem.

A really wierd issue. With the new Broadcon firmware installed and IPV6 enabled the built in wifi will not connect, but then if I connect a wifi adapter to the usb port the USB wifi and the built in Broadcom wifi both connect. Very strange.

Re: No Wifi connection to Pi Zero W after Raspbian update

Fri Feb 09, 2018 3:05 pm

I started again with a brand new SD card, and next to firing “sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get –y upgrade”, I also executed the command "sudo rpi-update" to bump up the kernel version.

Same symptoms with fresh image: connectivity to the Raspberry Pi Zero W device with SSH is working fine using Wifi.

After the OS packages update: the Raspberry Pi Zero W device comes up (LED flashing, then stays pn all time), however the device cannot connect to the Wifi AP. I cannot find it with my Wifi radar, cannot ping to the known IP address.

Removing the SD card from the Raspberry Pi Zero W device and inserting it into the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ device, I’m able to find the following “/var/log/syslog” entries:

if you post the log in its entirety for the boot relating to this date/time Feb 9 14:29:32 then we can compare it to our logs to see if we can find what's different other wise we are just guessing, we need data to work with..............
