Can't get Raspberry Pi 3 B + to work with WIFI


#1

I've tried both a new Raspberry Pi 3 and a 3 B+ and though I can get them to work through an Ethernet Cable Connection. They refuse to connect with the WIFI.

I've tried running through both the Octopi 15.01 Version as well as loading Raspian and going through the source file input. The difference is that with the Source file input, while connected through the Ethernet Cable. Rapsin can't find octoprint.org latest version or anything else. The one good thing about using the Raspian install method though is that I am able to upgrade pip to version 18.01. Whereas trying to upgrade pip on the Octopi Version 15.1 is damned near impossible.

This is what I get when trying to set up through the Ethernet while attempting to get the WIFI to work while in Raspian. I can't even get this far trying to use OctoPrint when connected to the Ethernet.

Where would everyone suggest I go fro here.
