Well, the wi-fi adapter is up but it may not be linked into the wi-fi network (hence, no issued IP address). Check the LEDs and see if your wi-fi network is forced to be some speed that your Raspi can't handle. Also, check the wi-fi zone/password as seen in sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. If you think you have the wrong ones entered, enter them using sudo raspi-config -> 2 Network.

I checked the sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. and the password and ssid is correct. what speed should i have it set too


#4

so i changed my password of my WiFi to not include ! and now the error changed(maybe a good thing)

#5

Which error are you referring to ?

It looks like you're connected

Try disconnecting the ethernet cable and see if it works


#6

As Spyder suggested, looks like that was it.
