I received my Pi Zero W 2 days ago. I have spent literally 30+ hours trying to connect it to wifi but have not been successful.
I burned a fresh image of RASPBIAN STRETCH LITE from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ using win21diskimager.
I followed these instructions from different guides
- and many more
I added the 2 files ssh and wpa_supplicant.conf (with my network details something like the one below)
After the boot these files get deleted and get added to /etc directory. I checked the file wpa_supplicant.conf and it contained the same data like the one above.
I left the pi alone for 5 minutes and then tried to check my network and it still wouldn’t show up.
Then I tried to ssh to the pi and even that failed.
I desperately need some help now as I will be using the pi for homebridge.
Network connectivity is very important for that.
Thanks in advance
