    I just got my pi-star mmdvm in the mail and tried to connect it to my wifi. It wouldn't connect, tried twice. After reading now I realize it may be because my netowork has an apostrophe in the SSID.

    But the mmdvm is not producing the access point anymore for some reason, so I can't go in and modify the wifi info. Rebooted several times. I did not change any other setting other than wifi settings.

    Should I just reflash the card?

    I think you simply browse to http://pi-star/ but I can't recall now. This route works when the pi hooks to wifi and the firmware is configured, and I think its the way in to configure wifi if the wifi config file you can create using the wifi help feature on the pistar website and drop in the root folder didn't hook up.

    mine didn't configure with file added, don't know why, and in the end I connected an hdmi display to read the boot messages to get the info.

    Since it's so easy to do, that would be a good point to start in the troubleshooting process.
