Connect to wireless network via Ubuntu terminal on Joule board

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to my enterprise network at work with my Intel Joule board.

I need to do that by using Ubuntu 16.04 terminal commands.

The wireless network is a WPA/WPA2 security type.

The interface name is 'wlp1s0' (not 'wlan0')

I read some guidelines about running commands from terminal and I followed steps from (https://askubuntu.com/questions/138472/how-do-i-connect-to-a-wpa-wifi-network-using-the-command-line wireless - How do I connect to a WPA wifi network using the command line? - Ask Ubuntu):

Here are the steps I took:

1) run sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant

2) I put my SSID (the network name/title as shown in wireless network list in upper right icon tray) and my password into /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf like so:

network={

ssid="ssid_name"

psk="password"

}

3) Run the following commands:

sudo wpa_supplicant -B -iwlp1s0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext 

sudo dhclient wlp1s0

** Nothing happens, the terminal is stuck and I exit with "Ctrl+Z"

Can anyone help me understand how to connect my Joule to the wifi via terminal commands?

Thanks in advance,

Yaniv

Hi Yaniv,

 

 

Thanks for your interest in the Intel Joule Platform.

 

 

Using the Reference Operating System, it is performed using Connman, which is a connection manager daemon that lets you to manage network connections over WiFi. Moreover, using Ubuntu is out of our support scope and I'd suggest you to contact Ubuntu support: https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/snappy/start/intel-joule/ https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/snappy/start/intel-joule/, since they can provide you a more accurate answer about that.

 

 

Additionally, you can take a look at https://askubuntu.com/questions/883305/connecting-to-new-wifi-network/883378 Connecting to new Wifi network that I think you can find useful information.

 

 

Hope this information helps.

 

 

Regards,
