My PI-3B is flashed with Ubuntu 16.04 with wireless-tools and wpa_supplicant also installed.
My issue is I can't get wlan0 to be recognised by the system either dynamically (DHCP) or statically.
I am using the following config data in /etc/network/interfaces:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*.cfg auto wlan0 #iface wlan0 inet dhcp iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.0.40 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.0.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 gateway 192.168.0.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.0.1, 126.96.36.199 wpa-wssid WIFI-NETWORK-NAME wpa-psk WIFI-NETWORK-PASSWORD
TO ELIMINATE HARD ISSUES, On the same Pi, but with a different SD card flashed with Raspbian, wifi connection works with the following settings in /etc/network/interfaces:
allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
So, the issue does not seem to be hardware related.
Can anyone help, please?
