This morning I was able to wirelessly Remote Desktop (learned from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDqQIDL3LKg) into Raspberry Pi 3 from Win 10 Laptop

Then the connectivity broke off. No problem, I unplugged and plugged Raspberry Pi to its power source.

Just now (it is evening) wi-fi connectivity to Raspberry broke off again. I unplugged and plugged Raspberry. I rebooted my Laptop.


Finally I connected to Raspberry via Ethernet. Once I unplugged Ethernet, then I could sustain Wi-fi connectivity (it's been 5 minutes)

Why is this happening and how to fix?

Configured wpa_supplicant.conf based on https://desertbot.io/blog/headless-raspberry-pi-3-bplus-ssh-wifi-setup

    Please include the settings you've changed or commands you've issued to access your RPi from a remote laptop. A video is not a good way to show what you've done. Are you using ssh or something else? – David Apr 6 '19 at 23:37
  • Do you do exactly the same then described on the official site Setting WiFi up via the command line? If so then it's not a problem of the Raspberry Pi. – Ingo Apr 7 '19 at 8:40
