Headless Pi 4 lost wifi connection and won't reconnect

Sun Sep 25, 2022 5:08 pm

I have a headless Raspberry Pi 4 model B running Raspbian Bullseye Lite I've been using as a plex media server for the past year or so. I haven't had any problems with it since I set it up. It has a static IP which I just ssh into and it works fine.Yesterday the power flickered and since it rebooted it is no longer connecting. I can't find the Pi's IP using nmap. Running arp -a against the IP gives me the following output (where the x's are my pi's address):

Code: Select all

? (192.xxx.xxx.xxx) at <incomplete> on wlp3s0
What can I do to further troubleshoot/resolve this issue?

I have resolved this issue by making a new wpa_supplicant.conf in the boot directory.
