So what is the status of the Pi Zero W?  I have multiple I pan on using this year and I can not seem to get the internal wireless card to work.  I can get a USB dongle to work if I edit interface.wlan0 but I have not tried to edit interface.eth0 file yet.  If I copy all the details from the wlan0 file and paste it to the eth0 file should the W work?


Thanks for all the work everyone is doing to help knuckleheads like me to have fun in this hobby.

I am running 1.8 on the pi zero w.  How can I get 1.9 to try?

If FPP v1.8 is upgraded to the latest build, then it will normally display an "upgrade to 1.9" button.

The "about.php" page will show you if an upgrade is available.

This is what the About page looks like on my Pi Zero (not a W, though)

with a USB wifi dongle plugged in I did get it upgraded to 1.9.  I did a shutdown then removed the wifi dongle after removing power and them powered it back up and no IP address.  During the start up script it said "invalid card number" a few lines after the FPP - Bringing wlan0 up
