I bought a Raspberry Pi B about 2 months ago. Since then I have tried numerous ways to get the WiFi up but without success. Installing Raspberian - when the process arrives at 'look for WiFi networks' nothing is detected altho' I have other devices connected on the active wireless network. Ignoring this install issue (Skip) and completing the install I configured the wired internet access without difficulty. Tried many configs/combinations in /etc/interface...wpa_supplicant etc. Running scan EESSID always returns "".
So do I have a h/w problem. I asked Raspberry if there was a definite test but received no help at all.
Before I return the Pi to the dealer can anyone advise of a simple/definite test to determine if my device has a hardware problem.
Thanks in advance Don Irwin
where did you ask, if not on this forum???I asked Raspberry if there was a definite test but received no help at all.
The product page for the Pi b+ says there is / was a Pi model B, albeit no longer sold via official resellers.
Thats a PI1B+ not just a Pi B
... or did you mean that the B+ page refers to the B?Obsolescence Statement
Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ will remain in production until at least January 2026
Sorry, in haste I thought you were saying the B+ was no longer available new.Imperf3kt wrote: ↑Thu Mar 26, 2020 9:47 pmYes, I said the product page for the b+ says the b existed and that people still sell those, just not via official resellers and usually second hand.
It was a direct refutal to mahjongg's claim that "there is no such thing as a Pi B"
I'm not sure how what I wrote could be taken any other way.
