OK. About "apt-get update". Should I do "apt-get upgrade" too, just to be safe? I think I've got the latest Raspian, If I do "uname -a" I get: Linux raspberrypi 4.4.13-v7+ #894 ...
I followed your instructions. With the /etc/dhcp.conf, does it matter where or when I make the change? I added the "static ip_address=184.108.40.206" statement in the middle, with other dhcp related statements.
Also with the /etc/network/interfaces change, when do i need to do that? I did it at the end, after doing all the steps.
I did the Raspberry Pi WIFI setup instructions from the Advanced Installation Options linked to by the installation instructions.There are 6 steps. I did them, skipping step 4 (Install the USB adaptor software) as you suggested.
Everything appeared to proceed normally with no error messages.
In the end though, no success. Same behavior as before.
After doing step 6, "sudo reboot", the PI-3 won't talk. If I bring up the browser, it won't connect to anything. The wireless network "kalite" does show up, but it will not connect.
Hmmmm. If I "ping www.google.com" it does appear to be connecting to something:
sudo ping www.google.com
PING www.google.com (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data
64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.114 ms
If I click on the wireless interfaces icon, top right side, I get: "No wireless interfaces found". If I rightclick I get:
- etho: configured 22.214.171.124/8
- wlan0: Associated with kalite
- wlan0: Configured 126.96.36.199/8
So, the PI-3 is still responsive in that I can bring up terminal windows and do things locally, but I cannot connect to the internet, and the kalite server does not appear to be running either.
I tried: "sudo service kalite start", but that did not help either. During installation it said kalite would be started at bootup.
Any further ideas?
