I bought a StereoPi v2 Camera Kit from Crowdsupply and have set it up. If I plug it into my local network with an Ethernet cable, I can successfully access the SLP2 interface and take pictures. I am also successful in using the StereoPi as a wireless access point.
However, I followed the instructions here to disable the access point and connect to my existing wifi network and failed. The StereoPi does not show up as connected when I check my wifi router, and if I access SLP2 via an Ethernet cable connection and click on the scan for wireless networks button in device settings, I get this error:
the simplest way to check is to update your router password (remove special symbols). If it works after that - this was an issue.
Silly me, I should have thought of that! I created a temporary guest network with my wifi router with a password that has no special characters. The StereoPi 2 connected successfully, and when I click on "Scan networks" it shows all the detected networks without an error message! So I guess the special characters are the problem...
huh, interesting case.
Technically we are copying wifi name and password to wpa_supplicant, and it should work. The "SyntaxError: JSON.parse: bad escaped character at line 1 column 61 of the JSON data" message caused by pushing the password to admin panel (since '/' sign breaks some stuff).
Could you please send me your wifi name and password (wow, sounds scary...) to my email. I'll try to reproduce this error on my side and see what's causing the issue.
