Wifi connect does not work as expected


I was trying to use the wifi-connect in my project but it does not work as expected. It does not scan for the ssids in the captive portal.

Interesting AB…I just used a WiFi-Connect project the other day testing out InkyShot and it worked great. Just out of curiosity, could you clone the InkyShot project, and copy/paste over to your project the wifi-connect container and the snippet in the docker-compose to try to port it into your App manually?

Thanks @dtischler.
The issue I mentioned is intermittent and does not happen all the time. I have seen it multiple times so I put it into the forums to ask.


Oh, interesting. Let’s see if anyone else from the community has noticed or experienced this behavior as well then. :slight_smile:

This post and the links should bring you up to speed.

WiFi-connect doesn’t seem to be getting the love right now. Lots of things that would be really good to see move forward, it is so integral to so many projects.

Weird, the forums seem to take GitHub urls to comments and shorten them to the url of the ticket:

Here is the direct link: https://github.com/balena-os/wifi-connect/pull/354#issuecomment-810606526

Oh, thanks for that link @maggie0002 - I had no idea that was an issue!
