Re: UDRC Compass image problem



The main thing to remember is Compass Linux is Raspbian Jessie with driver support for the UDRC and a few bug fixes. Virtually all other aspects are exactly like Jessie, including networking.

Networking changed between Raspbian Jessie and earlier versions of Raspbian/Debian.  Here is the brief task to be completed.

wlan0: Not associated -- means you are not connected to a WiFi access point.

I installed the latest Compass image from the link you provided to control the UDRC/DR-1X.  I had no issues installing the image, but after booting the image on the Raspberry Pi 3, my attempt to connect to WiFi has been unsuccessful.  Hovering the mouse over the Ethernet icon at the top right corner, I get the message: wlan0: Not associated.

I am able to connect to the Internet when hard wired with an Ethernet cable, but the Compass image doesn't seem to recognize the Pi 3 internal WiFi.  I have googled the issue and it seems others are having this issue, but I have not found a solution.  Please provide guidance as to where I can find information on getting Compass to recognize the Pi 3 WiFi.

BTW the Pi 3 WiFi is recognized by a different Linux image, and the Compass image does function with WiFi on my older Pi 2 so it seem that this issue is isolated to the Compass/Pi 3 configuration.
