    Having problems with Pi 3B+ wifi

    Hello
    I am running pCP LMS on Pi 3B+. All works on lan but wifi is causing problems. I can scan and find wifi networks but no wifi IP.
    Main thing is it doesn't connect without lan.
    Any ideas.
    Thanks

    Keep your lan cable plugged in until you get the wifi working.

    How are you configuring your wifi? 2.4g or 5g. Is your country code correct? Can you post your scan results? Also with your wifi configured, what is in your pcp_boot.log?

    Don't usually have problems with wifi setup on many pcs, country code is set to GB, capitals. Scan gives only two networks, both mine on the two frequencies the router works at. I think one high band and one low. I have never used high as walls too thick.
    How can I access pcp_boot.log
    For scan wifi mac I get Wifi IP: is missing - [Reboot] or [Save] to connect.

    Hmm, that all looks perfectly normal, Is that the whole boot log?

    That is the whole boot.log. It seems to say it has started the wifi. Any ideas?

    Can you provide the output of sudo ifconfig and the contents of /etc/dhcpcd.conf?

    It's ok to obfuscate the ip addresses, primarily need to know if they exist in either and match for both.
