So to begin, I have a brand new Raspberry Pi 3 B with Raspbian installed from NOOBS. I am trying to connect it to Wi-Fi however the GUI says
No Wireless Interfaces. When I hop into Terminal, I can see wlan0, but if I use
iwlist wlan0 scan it shows
No scan results.
Most of the tutorials/forums/answers I have found involve using
apt-get but I'm not connected to any network as I don't have any Ethernet to connect to and I can't get connected to Wi-Fi. I have tried editing the
wpa_supplicant.conf file to include the SSID and key but to no avail. I have done the same with the
/etc/network/interfaces file. I do have access to a separate computer where I can download items onto the microSD, however I cannot share the network for some reason (problem for a different time).
I tried downloading wicd onto the microSD and using
sudo python setup.py install but because there's no network connection it fails to fetch the required files. I also have a USB Wi-Fi adapter but that has the same problems as the built-in Wi-Fi receiver on the RPi 3. I have tried numerous solutions with no real answer. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction or show me if I'm missing something.
