Really very much hoping for some help, thanks in advance!!
I've had my Octopi working happily and connected over wifi, all good, for some time. But I recently changed broadband provider and so have a new router. So I set up a new SSID and password on the router, and put them into the octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt. But the printer isn't connecting.
Verifying th problem, I've scanned the network using AngryIPScanner and the router's internal scanner, and I don't see the printer. I've also connected to the printer via the router over ethernet and been able to connect fine so I know Octopi is still working. I have the wifi status app on the Octopi and it also says it's not connected.
Troubleshooting steps I've already carried out:
Redownloading a fresh octopi-wpa-supplicant.txt file in case a somehow bungled that. I'm working with Textmate on Mac so I think that should all be fine - it saves in UTF-8 I believe. I've reinput the password SSID and password about twenty times, I've checked the right things are #ed out and not #ed out. I've tried pressing WPS buttons on a new and untested dongle, then gone back to my old dongle.
I've turned off the WPS.
It does have a more complex password, with capitals, numbers, special characters, while the old password was simpler, but the additional characters are required by the new router. And as I say, I've swapped out the old dongle for a new one, and back again, with no change.
What I think I need help with
I'm assuming that, as nothing has really changed with the Octopi, there must be some setting on the router that needs adjusting. Any help in this area, or anything else, would be greatly, greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much - gotta get my printer going!!!
