    So many days reading an flashing and setting and reading and re-flashing ect ect
    Only light I can get to work is the power light
    My guess is my settings are off cause I went through the wiki set up.

    What step did you get confused, or have trouble, with?

    You already had FPP running on the Zero several weeks ago.

    Did you enable Pi Pixel Strings?

    Hi I can not get my Pi Zero w to connect to my WiFi router
    Have loaded and installed fpp and can log into it when I am tethered via USB port (192.168.7.2 or via fppzero (I renamed the Hostname as I also have a Pi3B+))
    I have put in the SSID and password of my WiFi
    Have set everything to just DHCP

    However when I just power it via the power input, it doesn't connect to my WiFi
    My router gateway is 10.0.0.138

    Attached photo has password temporary removed for privacy

    What the heck am I doing wrong? Anyone help me get the wifi working please

    How do you know it’s “not connected to your network” vs “not able to find it”?

    Does the PiZero still go into tethering mode?

    Well I can't see it on my network, either on my routers webpage or using Fing.
    I also tried setting a static IP and I can't access or see that either - router doesn't see it, Fing doesn't see it, cant ping it...

    It appears as if the WiFi is just not on, or not working on the Pi

    The pi only goes into the USB tethering mode, can NOT tether via wifi
