I've been messing around with my /etc/network/interfaces file so that I can try to get a static IP with wifi. Since I rebooted, it says I am connected to my AP, but I cannot select any other wifi networks (see the X appearing where the wifi symbol should be. When I click it, nothing happens).

enter image description here

When I run: service dhcpcd status I get the following message: [FAIL] dhcpcd is not running ... failed!

How can I re-enable the menu that lets me select different wifi networks?

  • Have a look at grep dhcpcd /var/log/syslog | tail -n 25. – goldilocks Sep 28 '15 at 15:56
  • If "messing around with my /etc/network/interfaces file" has broken it put it back the way it was. If you want help paste the content of the file in your question. – Milliways Sep 29 '15 at 0:29
