    How can I add wifi? (Joggler and Squeezeplay on Ubuntu 18.04)

    Hi All,

    I've got a Joggler all set up and working well, when plugged into the LAN.

    I want to remove the LAN cable and use Wifi. How can I add the wifi name and password?

    I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 (https://birdslikewires.net/debian-for-openframe), on the internal drive (https://birdslikewires.net/openframe-flash) and installed Squeezeplay with the sudo of-install squeezeplay command.

    On the ...
    https://birdslikewires.net/debian-for-openframe
    ... page, there's a method for adding wifi details as party of the install process, but only when it's installed on an external drive.

    How can I add the wifi details when it's on the internal drive (and installed via the OpenFrame-Flash)?

    I could install it all again if needed, but I'd prefer to add the Wifi details to the working system, if possible.

    Can anyone help,
    Thanks.

    On the Joggler ... Settings/Network
    then fill in the details for SSID & Passphrase - then choose Wireless - then click on "Apply Changes and Reboot"

    Hi Paul,

    Where are those settings?

    The only UI I have is SqueezePlay, but I haven't find anywhere to add Wifi settings in there.

    Before I added Squeezeplay, I just had the Ubuntu terminal. I can still access that via ssh (when I have a lan cable plugged in).

    I have found and tried this ...

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1105...-18-04-via-cli

    Let's amend your netplan file. From the terminal:

    sudo nano /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml

    Amend the file to read:

    network:
    version: 2
    renderer: networkd
    wifis:
    wlo1:
    dhcp4: true
    dhcp6: true
    access-points:
    "network_ssid_name":
    password: "**********"

    Of course, substitue your network name and password. Note that both are enclosed in quotation marks ".

    Netplan is quite strict about indentation and spacing; proofread carefully. Next, do:

    sudo netplan generate
    sudo netplan apply

    (replacing 01-netcfg.yaml with network.yaml)
    But it hasn't worked for me.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Damian

    The SqueezePlay UI ... Settings is (by default)down at the bottom of the home page (just above Quit) ... scroll down using the scroll bar on the right.

    There's no "Network" in there.

    In "Advanced", there's Network Tool and Networking, but neither have anywhere for me to add WiFi settings.

    The download page has instructions for how to do it by editing a file

    https://birdslikewires.net/debian-for-openframe
    It starts ...
    "Network Settings
    If the plan is to connect to your wifi network you will need to provide your network name and password. This can be done by editing the network.yaml file with a text editor (Notepad, TextEdit or similar). Open the file and you should see this:"

    Yes, I mentioned that, but it only seems relevant if you're running the OS from external storage.

    If you're adding it to external storage, like I have done, there doesn't seem to be a point where you can adif the file before it's installed.

    I think I need a way to do it after install.

    I hoped that the method that I found online would work (see above), but it didn't.

    Maybe one of these two howto's can help? Or not, but anyway have a look.
    1) using netplan, but the guide is for ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa.
    https://linuxconfig.org/ubuntu-20-04...m-command-line

    2) using wpa_supplicant on ubuntu 18.04; doesn't mention netplan though.
