Certain WiFi connections are greyed out and not accessible on Raspbian. I did try to modify the wpa_supplicant.conf but the changes don't seem to work. Does anybody know the correct way to add a WiFi with Radius auth

sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf - is the file i am editing

I try to add:

    ssid="YOUR_NETWORK_NAME"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
    pairwise=CCMP TKIP
    group=CCMP TKIP
    identity="YOUR_USER_NAME"
    password=hash:YOUR_PASSWORD_HASH
    phase1="peaplabel=0"
    phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
}

    it reverts back to the original state of the file exactly how are you modifying that file, and exactly which file are you modifying? – Jaromanda X Jun 2 at 5:01

After editing if you then

cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

it should still show your changes.

As the changes go after you reboot I think you card has gone to read only mode as it's failed.

You can test by creating a file (touch testfile will suffice) into the home directory and then rebooting. You will see it with ls before the reboot due to the SD card changes being in the cache and as this is cleared on reboot it will not be in the directory after if the card is read only
