Trying to get berryboot on my Pi 3B to connect to my WiFi has been a PITA.

When connecting it says "connecting" for a few seconds and then errors with Error connecting or obtaining IP-address. Check settings. I've tried connecting to different WiFi networks and know it is not the router causing this issue.


  • Start to examin the log files in the folder /var/log or run the command dmesg to see whats fails.

  • Berryboot is a boot manager and has normally nothing to do with WiFi. Why do you think it is the source of your problem?

I had this problem also. I'm not sure but I think it is a DNS issue. I tried switching off and on the router and it connected fine after that
