This is somewhat cosmetic.
Too many IPs: When polling my net, my RPi3 B seems to be broadcasting two IPs, a 'ghost' DHCP one, and my preferred, static one.
"No wireless interfaces found": Also, after upgrading to Stretch, the menu bar appears to have no net connection, and clicking on it, gives that error. However, I'm sending this from that very RPi.
I've done the standard
raspi-config, and changed locale settings, that often addresses this kind of thing.
Ideally, I want the static IP, with DHCP as a fallback. Aside from assigning a static IP, the RPi3 B is standard, with no extra net dongle, or other mods.
To get things started, here's my
