Yes, but only after a backup restore, this problem keeps showing up again and again!

@cocoflan
Which RPi model do you use?
And which WiFi adapter (if not an internal one): lsusb

In case it is an external USB WiFi dongle, please try the following:

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
wget https://dietpi.com/downloads/binaries/all/hostapd_2.5_all.zip
unzip hostapd_2.5_all.zip
rm hostapd_2.5_all.zip
...
the next depends on RPi and WiFi adapter model ;).

So the internal WiFi I bet... hmm then I have no idea why it fails currently, the steps I started are then not applicable.

A debug start then:

Code: Select all

systemctl status hostapd
systemctl stop hostapd
hostapd /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
