Did you update the Edison first? (copy the latest Edison image and do reboot ota)
In fact I did, but I am not convinced it worked. There was no obvious error message, but it did not change the host name, so I suppose something went wrong. Anyway, this version is now installed:
root@EdisonByChris:~# uname -r 3.10.17-poky-edison+
Would that be the current version? If not, how can I see what went wrong with the update?
Okay, never mind. For some reason upon retry the update worked now and so does wifi!
Thanks a lot!
Good to hear that it is working now.
Just for reference, this is how you get the current version:
PLEASE HELP, I am really stuck:
I am having the exact same problem, but nothing I do seems to clear it up.
Yes, I grabbed the latest version and updated it and ran "reboot ota".
As per other threads on this topic, I've deleted various log files and all /var/log/journal files. To no avail.
Here's the version I'm running: "3.10.17-poky-edison+"
BTW: I find it very curious that many in this forum refer to commands like "configure_edison --version", "configure_edison --latest" and "configure_edison --upgrade" since NONE of these three commands are supported by the configure_edison script on my Edison system.
Whenever I enter any of these three flags "configure_edison", the script promptly shows me it's Help screen which makes NO REFERENCE to any flags like --upgrade, --latest, or --version.
The only flags that my configure_edison supports are --name, --password, --changeName, --changePassword, --wifi and --server.
How is it that others seem to have a different version of configure_edison on their system(s)?

Ok, Hi again, all -
For those of you who did not get any relief from the prior answers to this thread, here is the solution / steps that fixed MY SITUATION that resulted in precisely the same symptoms:
FAULT: My /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file had become bloated / corrupted with 250 lines and approximately 20 connection records. They were, all but 2 of them, duplicates.
RESULT: Same as top of this thread
FIX: Use "vi /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf" to edit yours down to 1 un-corrupted entry. (Deleting the entire file is not good. I tried it. Not sure about deleting ALL entries in file.)
Hope this helps. Sorry I just don't have time to provide more details at the moment.

Dave I love you! you are great! And the best solution.
It helped to me! For some reason I guess, OS thinks when you connected too many times to turn off wifi and don't look for it anymore!
You soultion helped me a lot!
