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 is ecu-ixd
- Password: wifi password is babelfish67
To connect to this network from your Raspberry Pi, we’ll need to edit the
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.
To edit the file type:
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
Modify the file so it looks the same as below:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp allow-hotplug wlan0 auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-ssid "ecu-ixd" wpa-psk "babel67"
Now save the file by using the key combination
ctl+O (press the control button and the o button at the same time) Press ‘return’ to confirm the file name. Finally, to exit nano press
We’ll need to restart the network interface in order for it to connect to the network. We can do that with:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking stop
sudo /etc/init.d/networking start
Now that we’re connected to Wifi let’s connect our computer to the RPI
