Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

Did you use double quotes around your password in the wpa_passphrase command? I did not. That would probably solve my problem of it changing the "!" to "ifconfig" Legitimately had no clue what was causing this. See my comment above. Double quotes won't work for the ! character. The shell still trie...

I edited inside of the double quotes that were already in the file. I did not need to type them.

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

If in doubt RTFM (well use the man command) :D :lol: :D https://linux.die.net/man/8/wpa_passphrase My understanding is run it from the command line with wpa_passphrase ssid passphrase No Pi handy to test for you at the mo. I RTFM'd and I see that now. :D Problem is, unique characters are not acting...

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

You could use wpa_passphrase to generate a passphrase from your SSID and password. This should get around special characters and is a little more secure as your wifi password is not stored anywhere. wpa_supplicant.conf will then have a line like this: psk=6554d2e9bbf18ce37dd95fffc7a6d25d9ef54e317db...

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

Our guest network does not have special characters. It does have a space in the name though.
Assuming that spaces apply fine in raspi-config, I'm going to try that next.

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

@HawaiianPi, my config file is identical except for country code (US), SSID and psk. They were edited in command line on the pi itself, so no smart quotes changing characters there. @Andyroo, I tried moving Country code to above the network config. No change here. No WPA_supplicant files seem to wor...

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

Can you please post your wpa_supplicant.conf file here (remove SSID + password)? Please use code tags </> to keep the layout correct. How did you create the file? You cannot use the standard Windows Notepad as it adds a cr/lf pair to the end of the line rather than just lf Do you have the correct t...

Re: WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

I will leave the SSID in as it's a default network name. Below is the "octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt" file. MotionEyeOS takes a "wpa_supplicant.conf" file that only consists of the uncommented sections of this file. (network SSID and psk, then country code) Both were edited using Sublime text on MacOS/U...

WPA Supplicant not compatible with network?

Hey all! So I've got two Raspberry Pi 3b+ running, One running MotionEyeOS, and one running OctoPi, and my issue is exactly the same on both. If I connect them via ethernet to a switch, they're able to connect and I can SSH into them. If I try to let them run over wifi, they cannot connect to my net...
