Octopi newbie here:
I have an issue where my 2 yr old octopi install would not update due to something else that could not be updated in raspbian itself or so. Was advised to flash v17.
Raspberry PI 3 B
Got a new sd card
Setup the ssid & password & country.
Could log on locally.
Tried to get the desktop loaded, so I could get the touch screen setup again.
Could not get the desktop installed. Etc.
Commands work, but when looking closely, during install there's constant fetch errors.
Which lead me to find out that the unit is probably not even on wifi.
http://octopi.local does not work
How do I test what is going?
How do I fix a brand new install?
Static IP ? so I can see & access it perhaps via IP?
( previously I had a fixed IP ... so I always used 192.168.0.x to find the printer )
