  • Are you using a USB adapter? If builtin WIFI adapter it won't be found. Did it work before you ran rpi-update? – Milliways Feb 27 '17 at 8:44
  • yes, it works for almost one month.. but after last restart it haven't connect any more – Herman Filip Feb 27 '17 at 8:49
  • What is the output of ip link show ? Does it show the device wlan0 ? If not, then how is wlan0 defined in /etc/network/interfaces ? – Anonymous Aug 18 '17 at 14:45

Mine wouldn't work until I plugged in an external wifi dongle.

I had my wifi info in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf prior to plugging in the dongle, and tried rebooting.

~ $ sudo vi /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

network={
  ssid="NETWORK_NAME"
  psk="PASSWORD"
  key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

After the wifi connection was established, I could remove the dongle and my on-board would continue to work. (maybe it's a safety feature?)

  • my have internal wireless – Herman Filip Jun 26 '17 at 20:04
  • Same. I plugged an external one to activate it, then the internal worked. – Chris Jun 28 '17 at 21:07
