    Just installed “TAIL” on me Pi Zero W

    Changed “home” entry in wpa_supplicant, to match my home network and pi connected with no issues, can ssh, vnc etc.
    The issue is, despite, being connected to the home network, can’t get the internet working on pi.

    Also, tried adding the wlan1 interface (722n v1) with the entry below wlan0:

    allow-hotplug wlan1
    iface wlan1 inet dhcp
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    Iwconfig and ifconfig show the interface, but, it wouldn’t connect to home network.
    I renamed the current wpa_supplicant file and recreated wpa_supplicant with:
    “wpa_passphrase <Your SSID> >> /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf”

    wlan1 then connected to my home network, but, also, could not get any internet connection.

    I run a few other pi’s with re4son (non tail) images, and they have no similar issues.

    Hi gitxmax,

    Let me retrace your steps tonight and see where it gets stuck.
    Do you mind sending me your “/boot/interfaces”?

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for your attention.

    Have changed nothing from the default, only replaced “home” in wpa_supplicant, to match my hotspot.

    Another test I made,
    Clean install of Pi-Tail.
    Removed pre-configured wpa_supplicant, interfaces files.
    Put my own interfaces file, containing only:

    auto wlan0
    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-ssid xxx
    wpa-psk xxxxx

    As I always do, on my clean installs, for simple configuration and connecting to wifi on first boot. This always works with re4son pre-build images.

    In this case, the connection to homework was successful, but, once again, no internet connection.

    Strangely, running setgw, return as the default gw, where as my router is I tried setting the default gw manually, to, which succeeded, but still, no internet connection established.

    Thanks again!

    P.S. Found the culprit.
    /etc/resolv.conf has for nameserver, changing it to my router ip, fixed the issue.
