I am not able to connect to wireless networks for internet using wifi dongle in my raspberry pi. I connect PI to Desktop using ethernet for SSH. I modified interfaces file and wpa-supplicant.conf file adding wireless networks as mentioned in online tutorials. But none helped so far.

I get error :

wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start raspberry pi

But I can still ssh to pi using ethernet.

Please help.

    Could you post your wpa-supplicant.conf file (WARNING remove any sensitive information from it by replacing them with "********" for example)? – Huygens Sep 4 '15 at 13:12

If you are using the latest Raspbian (May 2015) wpa_supplicant daemon is not used. Most of the tutorials on the web DO NOT work with this release.

See current instructions at https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/wireless/README.md
