My Raspberry Pi3 won't boot unless I connect it with an Ethernet cable to my router or to my laptop. What if I wanted to use the raspberry Pi in a place that has no internet connection? Any suggestion will be helpful.

  • A freshly Debian or eq will boot without network. Have you made any changes or is running another OS? Your question is lacking facts and data.

  • I haven't made any changes with it. The os is RASPBIAN STRETCH WITH DESKTOP.

There is an option "Wait for Network on Boot", I suspect this could be the culprit. To change it simply type

sudo raspi-config

in a terminal and select "Boot Options" > "Wait for Network on Boot"
