Have to reconnect wifi after reboot

I’m on an odroid n2 coreelec edition and I’m having issues with WiFi. I’m using an external dongle, and it works great, but if I reboot it forgets the network? Is there a fix for this? Building a box for my in-laws.

Have you tried a fixed ip address

I have not, but have had issues with that and using openvpn in the past. Would that likely force it to remember the network info?

Still no luck with the static IP, it forgets all the network info…
