    Raspberry Pi - Picoreplayer WiFi problem

    I am beyond frustrated!

    First of all, I have searched this forum and the whole Internet at least a dozen of times before turning to you my fellow forum members.

    My problem is the following:
    -at my home I have two Raspberries with PiCorePlayer installed on both.
    -until a couple of weeks ago both worked perfectly, the one in our living room wired and the one in the bedroom on WiFi
    -then all of a sudden the bedroom one stopped working
    -it just doesn't connect to my Wifi
    -it works fine wired
    -I have checked everything:
    -fresh install
    -fresh install with all previous versions
    -I have tried to connect the same Raspberry Pi with some other OS and it connected just fine
    -I have tried to connect the same Raspberry Pi to a WiFi network at work and it connected just fine
    -I have tried to copy/paste the SSID into the settings

    Here is the screenshot of the diagnosticsName:  Screen Shot 2020-02-05 at 17.15.03.jpg

    Has anyone got any ideas what can be wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    I don;t have an immediate answer for you but your screenshot show WiFi credentials so you might want to remove the screenshot and scribble over that part and put it back.
    Of course, for now at least, no-one knows who you really are and, more importantly, where you are - but if that becomes clearer over time then you connection details could be useful to someone who wants to break in.

    Is it a Rpi 3 B by any chance ?

    I had one and even when new the Wi-Fi was not brilliant after a time it deteriorated to the point it would not pick up a Wi-Fi signal 6 inches from the access point.

    Everything else was fine (and I still use it wired)

    This was before the B+ when they changed the antenna (I wonder why !)

    Further down on the wifi page, there should be a scan results section. This will show signal strength.

    What does that say.
