buster image can't get wi-fi to work

Post by doubledrat » 17 Nov 2019 20:40

Hi

I'm using the z-wave buster image and I can't get wifi to work. I've tried two different cards and multiple configurations.

the same hardware with vanilla buster (light) works first time.

any idea what you've done to the image to prevent wifi working?

one of the adapters I've tried is an edimax. not sure what the other one is.

If I ping the pi while it's booting, it comes on the network briefly (3-4 pings) then falls off the network again.

ideas?

thanks

Hi!
Try different usb cable and power adapter.
I think the problem with power, I've seen the like.

thanks for the suggestion, but as I said, the same hardware with a clean buster image works fine. it's only with the one provided by zwave that doesn't work, so it can't be the power.

no ideas?

I'm having to use it wired at the moment which is not at all convenient...
