Raspberry Pi 3 Not Connecting to Network

2018-06-24 02:19:42

I have changed the wpa_supplicant.conf file on my Raspberry Pi 3 (running Raspbian Lite) to the proper SSID and password of our WPA2 WiFi, and it shows the proper SSID when running iwconfig. However:

When I run nmcli general status, it says the Raspberry Pi is disconnected.

The Raspberry Pi is not detected on our router's configuration page.

The /etc/network/interfaces file only contains comments and a reference to an empty source directory (interfaces.d), unlike how I've typically seen the file online.

The /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file currently looks like this (with the SSID and password replaced by the proper information):

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

update_config=1

country=US

network={

ssid="wifi_name"

psk="wifi_password"

}

How could I establish a functioning connection?
