I just purchased a pi 2 through the CanaKit, and I'm having some issues getting the wifi dongle to work. It scans for networks and finds mine, but when I put in the passcode and click "OK," absolutely nothing happens. It never connects to the network, and it never shows anything that suggests that it's attempting a connection, as I expect it would do. I hooked it to an ethernet cable and did
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade to make sure everything was up to date, and I verified that the network configuration in
/etc/(something)/wpa_supplicant is correct, though still no joy.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? Anyone have an idea as to how I might go about fixing it?
