Those steps did not help stats:

MAC laptop used etched to burn image, used ATOM as the text editor,

supplicant text: (yes it is supposed to be US and I also changed my password. I have heard that relocating the country code to the top is supposed to work, it does not. I have scanned all of the available network and the network shows up. I have put in the correct password, the raspberry pi setup keeps insisting that I have the wrong country code. I have restarted my computer multiple times. The thing will not connect to my network, I get no IP address. It insists that I lof on with raspberry pi local which does not work, and yes I am relatively new to this. I have also put the information in without changing any spaces being sure to preserve the code. I am working on a Raspberry Pi Zero W, latest pi download, also I tried to update and upgrade as well, guess what happened? Please let me know I can connect with my wifi, BTW I will n ot plug it directly into the network, I have been able to connect over wifi and not ethernet before previously.

WPA/WPA2 secured

network={
ssid="FIOS-TWHNX-5G"
psk="orb69grab38axle"
}

Open/unsecured

#network={

ssid="put SSID here"

key_mgmt=NONE

#}

WEP "secured"

WEP can be cracked within minutes. If your network is still relying on this

encryption scheme you should seriously consider to update your network ASAP.

#network={

ssid="put SSID here"

key_mgmt=NONE

wep_key0="put password here"

wep_tx_keyidx=0

#}

Uncomment the country your Pi is in to activate Wifi in RaspberryPi 3 B+ and above

For full list see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2

#country=GB # United Kingdom
#country=CA # Canada
#country=DE # Germany
#country=FR # France
country=US # United States

You should not have to change the lines below

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


#102

BTW all of the hashmarks are in place on my RPI config.txt file that is not a solution either,


#103

FIOS is spelled FiOS! the doggone capitilization matters and there it is it worked> I wasted s much of my life trying to get that to work.


#104

I did the same thing with my most recent Octo setup. I used ChaseWIFI instead of ChaseWiFi. Always the little things.


#105

Putty and ssh use tcp/22 to connect. Unfortunately, I no longer have access to Windows since I've converted everything to either OSX, Ubuntu, Raspian or ethOS.

Try seeing if searching for this on the Internet helps with an answer.

Hi! I got all the way through the troubleshooting headings and landed on Access your router's set-up/control page. When I logged into my router it shows that my octopi is connected. So I guess it's working but when I open PuTTy and try to octopi.local it pops open and the cursor stays solid green then after 35-40 seconds I get a PuTTy Fatal Error dialogue box that says Network error: Connection timed out. So I haven't been able to connect to it with SSH and change pass.

It's Raspberry PI 3 and octopi 15.1.
I used Sublime to edit octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt.
and like I mentioned I'm using PuTTy to try and access it.

I'm sorry if this isn't the right place... I'm new to forums in general. If there's a topic similar to this please let me know. Any help would be much appreciated.

I can't get this thing to work :cry:


#107

That's alright, we were all noobs once.

If your router thinks it's connected, it should also know its IP address. You might try connecting remotely using that instead of octopi.local. You are adding ".local" to then end of that, right? Either way, the user in question is pi and the default password is raspberry.

Since you're using PuTTY I have to assume that you're also using Windows. And Windows by default doesn't include the Bonjour name resolution service. So next on your reading list is this one: name resolution hacks.


#108

Hello Sir,
Thanks for your help and I am pleased to share with you that i am working on the octopi and it's really great. Sir I m trying to install.a plugin named as OCTOLAPSE. But at the point of installation it's asking me to upgrade the PIP.

Can you please guide me on how can I upgrade the PIP.

I m using putty to login the network is address.

Waiting for your reply

Regards,

Rishabh

I think you can safely ignore that suggestion. You will see this with every plugin installation; it's a standard suggestion by the pip manager itself but foosel/guy manage this nicely for us.

**What is the problem?
-I have been using OcotoPi (Version 0.15.1) for a few weeks flawlessly over wifi connected to my Original Prusa i3 mk3. I sent a print to it this morning, which finished - and now I cannot login to the Octopi server (raspberry pi 3b+)
What did you already try to solve it?
-I logged in to my router and it still sees my device as connected on the same IP address that I have been using.
-I tried pinging it with no return (using cmd.exe)
-I tried SSH connection via PuTTy with no success
-I restarted the OctoPi server with no success
Additional information about your setup (OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, octoprint.log, serial.log or output on terminal tab, ...)
-I am using Windows 10 (also tried via my iPhone and iPad with no success). Looking for options before I reformat the SD and start from scratch...


#111

Merged into the troubleshooting megatopic.

Using a screen and keyboard on the raspberry pi would be helpful, and you don't have proof your Pi is talking other than your router, which may not be true (eg dhcp lease).


#112

So the other day I had my internet connection upgraded to Ultra Fibre Optic. It's with the same ISP, but a totally new router, but for some reason I cannot get my Raspberry Pi 3B+ to connect via wifi. I can only connect if I use a ethernet cable, which unfortunatey in the long run, is not practical.

Here's what I have tried:
Start from scratch with a new image on 2 sd cards.
Used Etcher to write the image.
Setup my Octopi using my works wifi and they connect no problem.
Tried using Raspi-Config to set my network and country details, as well as configuring the octopi-wpa-supplicant txt file.

Here's what I'm running:
Raspberry Pi 3B+ running Octopi 0.15.1
Upgraded Octoprint to 1.3.9

It's the exact same configuration that I was running before my internet upgrade, which was running fine.

Running IP Scanner does not show my Pi unless it is connected via ethernet. Logging into my router will only show my Pi when it is connected via ethernet.

Running ifconfig from PuTTY gives the follwoing:

It is obviously seeing my network as it's the first one in the list ie TALKTALK10FBD4, but I am at a loss as to why it will not connect via wifi, so I am hoping that someone with a lot more knowledge than me (which is next to nothing, lol) can help me out.

Thanks
Andy

Note that you're missing the RUNNING flag; you're not connected to your wi-fi, in other words.

  • It sees the wifi zone and it's got killer signal strength
  • You've got a 2.4Ghz setup. Pretty sure the 3B+ now does 5Ghz as well, for what it's worth. You might consider this if you just upgraded your router.
  • Since you're using putty rather than ssh, I have to assume that you're using Windows. You haven't indicated any work-arounds that you'd done in the past on this like:
    • Editing your hosts file
    • Installing iTunes (to get the Bonjour lookup service)
  • I assume that your zone's SSID isn't hidden since we see it in the audit

You might want to share your octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt contents with us. The country code line should be included only once and this should appear above the network paragraph. Both SSID and password are case-sensitive.


#114

Managed to get it sort.

Had to install the Raspian Desktop to enable me to connect to wifi. I then changed the boot up sequence back to command line and it connects just fine. I can even now connect to my octopi.local address without having to put in the ip address in my browser. I couldn't before for some reason.


#115

BTW I can't use the 5GHz band due to my pc only having 2.4GHz connection and the issues I ws having with regards to no 'real time update' unless I kept refreshing the page


#116

Seems like a fair amount of work, to be honest. I know that the Desktop script takes a fair while to run. Glad you got it working, though.


#117

Tell me about it. What I don't understand is, why the desktop would see my wifi but booting direct to command line wouldn't. I didn't have this problem before my internet upgrade, which considering it's with the same ISP, just a different router, makes it even more weird to me.


#118

It depends upon a lot of things. Configuring a static SSID/Password combination in a file is different from doing a radio scan and then selecting one from there.

Most problems related to no wifi connection end up with a user doing a facepalm: "oh man, I typed the password incorrectly" or "I forgot to uncomment out that ending brace". Doing yet one of these again today, even I forgot to uncomment those lines in the network paragraph. It was only after putting an HDMI monitor on there that I was confident that it was booting. (For what it's worth, there's a long pause in the first Raspi boot in which it's expanding the root partition, making it seem unresponsive.)


#119

It doesn't. It's changing the text config in some way to make it work.


#120

Right then. I have another sd card with just the standard Octopi install that I know works cause I tried it at work last night. I'll compare the 2 config files to see what has changed
