Can you post screen shots of your eth0 and wlan0 pages?

Well i am at a loss. I was finally able to get back into my pi, but still have no upgrade button. When i set the DNS settings to what the DNS settings were in my router, the pi froze up, had to go into the thumb drive and erase the static IP for the wlan.

On the Troubleshooting Commands page in the FPP UI, look for the section that says "Internet Access:    ping -c 1 github.com".  Copy the text in that section into a post here, or, just attach your logs zip which will also contain the troubleshooting commands output.

If you are getting unknown host you are not connected to the internet.  So that would mean some kind of internet issue be it configuration or wiring or wifi connection.

I always put in the DNS area the ip of my router I am connected to and the ip of google dns which is 8.8.8.8

Think i may have to hook this up directly to the modem. I shouldn't have to with it being hooked up with the wifi but i cant get anything else to work.

Did you notice the bottom couple of lines on iwconfig.  I cannot interpret them, but it would indicate to me that your wifi is not connecting.  I had problems with case one time with wifi.  Both the ssid and the pw are case sensitive on Linux/FPP.

The moment i brought it inside i was able to get the down load button. Did not even have to hard line to the modem. I think the Wifi module on the Pi 3 is not very strong.

Since I can reach all 5 of my Pi3's via wifi from anywhere in my yard or my house and even from across the street I doubt that it is the Pi3, but it may be the wifi environment where you live.

bowhunter3125. Try looking at the signal strength using your phone  or under troubleshooting on the FPP page.  Here is a discussion about this last year.

 Wait until you have the final router then get a long extension cord and just go around and test. I honestly don't know what you would be wanting over 70.  Worst case is get an antenna for the Pi or use something like this and disable the onboard wifi.
