Can someone help me with Wireless access for the Octocam. I have followed the instructions “to a point”. I intend to build the Octocam with my son so I did a dummy run. I followed the instructions on how to put the raspberry pi image onto the SD card and then I using a Windows 10 computer I created the text file on the SD card to enable wireless access called “wpa_supplicant.conf”
I then boot the pi without plugging the camera in, yes it is a standalone pi as I assume the camera not being present will not make a difference, I want to leave this for my son.
I am using a TP Link wireless access point and I have also tried my Samsung galaxy as a hotspot.
In both cases I cannot get the Pi Zero to connect to either of these wireless networks.
I have created the text files in Notepad, Notepad++ and Atom on the same windows 10 machine that I used to burn the SD card. As far as I know I am saving them as raw text files so Carriage returns and Line feeds etc should not be an issue or is there something else I am missing or do I need a Linux machine to create the text file or some other form of encoding?
Thanks in advance.
