I'm a rank Raspbian amateur trying to learn as I go here so apologies if I'm missing knowledge you all consider basic.

I've just installed Raspbian on my RPiB. Everything works and I am now trying to get wifi functionality. I can see the list of available networks but when I enter the key and try to connect nothing happens.

lsusb results in being able to see my Realtek wifi dongle.

lsmod gives the following:

cfg80211 501663 0
rfkill 22491 1 cfg80211

Wifi is configured as follows:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
ssid="network-name"
psk="network password"
}

with my networkk name and password filled in for ssid and psk.

When I hover the cursor over the icon it shows a working ethernet cable connection but for wlan0 it shows as "not associated".

I've done this several times now. I've confirmed the passkey by using it on my phone a couple of times to connect. Still nothing.

Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?

Thanks.

EDIT: Sorry about the gibberish. Still getting the hang of this platform.

So yes I edited the conf according to a guide on the Raspberry Pi forum. I set it up as dhcp and also static.

With ifconfig I get:

ifconfig:
