I'm having a new issue on this now, I wanted to flash the beta 64 bit build on my Pi 4. I can't connect to wifi with just putting my wifi name and password, I'm on WPA2 channel 36 for the 5.0GHz

How do I specify my wifi channel 36 in dietpi-wifi.txt file when setting up wifi for the first time?

ok looks like there is an issue on the 64bit BETA image. Seems wlan0 interface is soft-blocked on first boot. Similar to this one https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issu ... -643700699

You could implement the workaround, if you have screen and keyboard attached

BTW: you can't pin a client to a specific channel. This is done one the AP ;)
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
