Sounds good. I'll check with him and see what I can possibly get. I was under the impression they were failure prone, but now that I think about it, I don't know why I thought that.
I've got my Pi Zero W soldered up and connected to my HM 4.2 board, but I'm having problems getting wifi going. I wasn't able to just take my old SD card and use it in the new Pi, because my old card was not the correct size SD format for the Pi Zero W. So I downloaded the latest image using the download utility to put in my SSID and everything. I used DD on my mac to copy the image to the an SD card that does fit. I plugged the Pi into my heatermeter board, an HDMi cable into my pi connected to a display, and then the power cable connected to the heatermeter board. All powers up fine. I can watch the console of the pi boot on my display, and the only error I see is an IPV6: wlan0 link disconnected message at the very end of the boot. If I hit enter on my attached keyboard and get dropped to a root shell, I can run ifconfig and see that while wlan0 is loaded, there is no IP address or link detected.
What am I missing here? I checked to make sure my config.txt had the SSID and passphrase in it, uncommented. Do I need to edit /etc/config/network or anything alone those lines?
