I’ve just downloaded and reinstalled the latest M2P image onto my Raspberry Pi 2. There’s a USB wireless adapter that I’ve used before on the same hardware without issue, however on this occasion I can’t seem to get it to work. The max2play SSID is automatically created correctly and I can connect to that, and connect to the M2P interface via a web browser. But when I enter the WiFi details, it attempts to connect, but then fails. I’ve pasted the log output below:
Setup WiFi Started 2018-03-20 19:16:03| Disable Accesspoint ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured 0 OK OK OK OK OK OK No IP-Address could be received - WiFi NOT working correctly. Please check Network-ID and Passphrase! ifdown: ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0 OK OK WiFi detected Restarting hostapd (via systemctl): hostapd.service. Restarting dnsmasq (via systemctl): dnsmasq.service. Finished Please Click here Reload Page!
And after the connection attempt the WiFi debug page says:

I can’t easily move the Pi closer to a router to connect by a LAN cable as it is installed in a fixed location.
Are there any other ways I can try to configure WiFi via the automatic AP that’s created, or by SSH/editing of config files directly on the SD card?

I connect to the automatic AP, access the web interface and add my WiFi network settings, then click save all settings, but they don’t appear to save successfully, as the automatic AP mode reactivates after a few minutes. Should I try removing the automatic AP and WPS checkbox at the same time as saving my WiFi settings?
