Connect to a wireless network

Let’s explore how to connect the Raspberry Pi to a wireless network.

Follow these steps to connect to a wireless network:

  1. Start the console-based Raspberry Pi configuration tool:

    $ sudo raspi-config
  2. Use option 2 to select Network Options, then option 2 again to select Wi-Fi. Enter the SSID and key, if needed, as you can see in this screenshot:

  3. Enable ssh. Use option 5 Interfacing Options from the top menu, then 2 SSH, as you can see in this screenshot:

    If the Raspbian desktop is running, enable the ssh server using the configuration Preferences -> Raspberry Pi. Click the Interfaces tab.

  4. Change the password to something other than the default value. The use of sudo is automatically enabled for user pi. Enter passwd on the command line and click Enter. You will be prompted to enter the current password and then asked for a new password. The new password will be requested a second time to confirm.

In Installing the Gator daemon, we will set up the gator daemon to enable the connection to Streamline.
