Im an new octopi user and im currently trying to upgrade my second printer (Prusa i3 Mk3) with the Rpi Zero W.
I know i know, the Zero is to slow and so on, but im just planning to use it for remote control no camera no plugins planned and a lot of people seem to do so succesfully, and the einsy board connects via GPIO Header to the Zero, wich keeps everything clean.
The problem is i cant get my Zero to connect to my wifi. I can neither get octopi.local to connect, nor do i see the octopi my routers interface.
I configured the "octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt" file as i did on my rpi 4B (Anycubic Chiron) where everything works fine.
- i already tried reflashing the firmware. (BalenaEtcher run on Win 10)
- i added the scan_ssid=1 command in the wpa file
but i cant get it to connect.
the LED light flashes for a minute or two, signaling boot, the the led turns on continously. But i cant get a connection.
i tried putting the zero on the GPIO without reaction
also powering it with the default usb power input of the pi didn't work.
Currentl i can not provied any logs, as i can't connect vie SSH
i am using the Prusaprint.img image provided by prusa here:
flashed on a Sandisk micro SD HC
Does anybody have an idea what i could have done wrong softwarewise or did i buy a fried board?
