Pi zero W not sending wi fi signal
I followed the instructions for the octaprint.
I , first tried, plugging my i3 Mk3(brand new)printer usb into the zero w, applied power
gave it a minute to boot, used a wifi scanning app, but I got no port address.
I plugged the connectors into a pi 3, AND the sd card,(obviously) . This should , as with the zero W, send out a wifi signal, But it didn't. I then plugged in the ethernet cable, to the Pi3, and , hay presto, I got a wifi signal & Octaprint worked perfectly.
So the SSID & password, I entered is correct .
I could leave it set with the pi3 & ethernet cable, but this would be no difference to plugging the usb straight into the computer.

Is this a good question?
