    Resolved [RESOLVED] Getting wifi working in Linux

    Hi,

    I am trying to get WiFi working on my Raspberry Pi and I have been successful in the past. However, the past couple of attempts have failed even after I have followed tutorials online. As far as I know all the configuration files are correct but the system is not picking up the network.

    I have noticed that the WiFi dongle has been acting strangly in that it lights up at odd times even though there is not setup correctly.

    Edit:

    Here are the settings I am currently using (not working):

    Supplicant.conf

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

    network{
    wpa-ssid "network"
    wpa-psk "password"
    proto=WPA
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=CCMP
    auth_alg=OPEN
    psk=2fe820b1e836cb734fb88172egfi01c5d40bb8449cc55c6e26ce300bbe8e04c
    }

    interface

    auto lo

    iface lo inet loopback
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    allow-hotplug wlan0
    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet static
    address "Ip address of the pi"
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway "Ip of the router"
    wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    iface default inet dhcp


    Thanks,

    Re: Getting wifi working in Linux

    Strange! After I re-installed Raspbian and then used the ¨WPA GUI¨ to setup the connection it worked.

    Steps:

    in the terminal: sudo apt-get install wpagui
    menu editor click to show the gui in the menu because it does not show automatically.
    set up the network using the gui.

    Checking the above files again but I do not see anything dramatically different?

    Supplicant.conf

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

    network={
    ssid="network"
    psk="password"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=CCMP
    auth_alg=OPEN
    }

    Interfaces:

    # interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

    # Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd
    # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'

    # Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
    source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    iface eth0 inet manual

    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet manual
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    allow-hotplug wlan1
    iface wlan1 inet manual

    Edit:

    In the supplicant code in the first post I had

    wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    when it should have been

    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    still do not know what ¨wpa-roam¨ and ¨wpa-conf¨ do?
