For these tutorials we will not use the Emily Carr Wifi network as it is problematic, instead we’ll be using my own network for this course, here is the login:

  • SSID: wifi network name: ecu-ixd
  • Password: babelfish67

To connect your Raspberry Pi to this network, you’ll need to edit:

We’re going to use nano to do this. Nano is a text editor for Unix-like computing systems or operating environments using a command line interface.

  1. Type
    sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
  2. type or copy/paste the following at the bottom
  3. press ctrl+o to save and ctrl+x to exit
  4. restart with sudo reboot
    • the raspberry pi should now reboot and try to connect to the wifi network – check with lanscan or in your router’s setup panel like before
    • if the raspberry pi could connect to wifi, you can now disconnect the ethernet cable

Now that we’re connected to Wifi let’s connect our computer to the RPI
