I can’t get wireless networking on version 2.246. I’ve tried several pi’s and usb network adapters but nothing works. On first boot the hotspot works a bit but becomes flakey if I try and turn on wireless networking. I can see my local networks id’s but when I connect to them nothing happens. I’ve tried wired connection and configuring from that, or connecting to the hotspot and then configuring a wireless network but nothing works.
I tried turning off hotspot, (as I don’t need/want it) to see if that helped but when hotspot is turned off I am unable to turn wireless networking on. Hotspot has to be turned on, for me to enable wireless networking.
Everything works great with a wired connection, but nothing I try seems to get wireless to work. The fact that the adapters can see the networks, and the fact I’ve tried several wireless networks, with excellent signal strength makes me think this is more of a software issue.
I saw some old conversations about wireless issues but these seemed to be related to power saving mode on the Edimax adapaters. I have tried that adapter, but several others as well, all with the same result.
Any help greatly appreciated. I’m going round in circles here.
