Raspbian Stretch WiFi Issue with Pi Zero W

Tue Sep 12, 2017 5:45 pm

Having an issue getting my WiFi to work after downloading and installing a the New Raspbian Stretch Desktop Version. This is a completely new build I used etcher to flash the SD Card and installed it in my Pi Zero W and modified my /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file as I had become accustomed to doing on Jesse and no worky! Is there a known set of procedures with this new Stretch OS for getting the WiFi to work with a Pi Zero W ?

Upon looking at other posts I have tried the following in my /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file without any luck.

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

network={
ssid="your-network-service-set-identifier"
psk="your-network-WPA/WPA2-security-passphrase"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Please assist..

Thanks in advance

If your using the Desktop version then its much easier to simply use the WiFi GUI option to connect to your router as it eliminates any change of a typo creeping in

I tried however the GUI APP when I right click or left click on it doesn't open any other window, so I guess what I am saying is it does nothing therefor I am forced into Terminal land.

So I think we've found the real problem :)

Does the Pi def work with Jessie?

If so, try downloading the latest Stretch (it got updated last week) via a different browser (to eliminate any corruptions with download in orig browser) and give that a run out

I HAVE IT WORKING NOW.. Thank you for the suggestion what I did was to reflash Stretch again and tried the GUI this time I entered the Router Data and it then allows me to select the WiFi Access Point and I put in the Password and Walla.

I appreciate the suggestion as I have been hacking at this all afternoon! Thanks Again

hi Brian,

I have the same problem with Wifi on pi zero W (raspbian stretch with desktop).

Would you mind telling me what does the WIFI GUI you mentioned ?

Did you mean you connect the lcd with pi zero W then connect Wifi by wifi search in destop environment ?


Update#1:
I see my raspberry pi in my modern: DHCP client List
raspberrypi 192.168.0.112

but when I tried, it return error
ssh pi@192.168.0.112
ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.112 port 22: No route to host


thank you and regards,
Khoa

SSH has been disabled by default in Raspbian for quite a while now. To enable it at boot time you need to create a file named "ssh" in the small FAT32 boot partition (the only part of the card that is normally accessible to a Windows or Mac PC). When Raspbian finds that file it will enable SSH and delete the file.
My password is the last 8 digits of Pi.

You can try the following:

in

Code: Select all

/etc/network/interface
:

Code: Select all

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp

Why?

999999/1000000 folks don't need to add anything to /etc/network/interfaces.
All network configuration on the last version of Jessie and latest version of Stretch is done in /etc/dhcpcd.conf.
