Today, after having my Raspberry Pi sitting in a drawer for close to a month, I decided to finally set it up.
Unfortunately, the screen which I bought for it arrived broken, so I am having to do everything through my laptop and Mobaxterm.
When I set up the initial internet connection using an Ethernet cable (I was going to borrow someones, but then I found a humongous purple one from a long time ago), it set up fine.
Unfortunately, it's setting up the Wi-Fi setup which gives me the issue. For what it's worth, my Wi-Fi adapter is an Edimax EW-7811Un.
I tried several methods of setting it up, but none of them have helped.
First, I followed this guide, How-To: Add WiFi to the Raspberry Pi, to set up up using text editing, I triple checked my SSID and password, but to no avail.
Then, I decided to try the Wi-Fi setup offered by Raspberry Pi (because I didn't think of it right away), but it didn't prove useful. Left clicking, it told me that no wireless interfaces were found, and it did not show me my router, right clicking it and clicking Settings did not seem to help either, as SSID did not show my router.
Finally, I finally decided to try this method, Raspberry Pi - Installing the Edimax EW-7811Un USB WiFi Adapter (WiFiPi), but that didn't make any improvements over what I had already.
So as it stands now, this is what I get when I check the
wlan0 setup. As you can tell, it does not have an IP address, but a mixture of letters and numbers.
At this point I'm not really sure what to try next. Suggestions?
