Hello srujani,

 

 

In order to connect your board to a specific network without using configure_edison --wifi, you can follow the next steps:

 

 

ifconfig wlan0 down

 

# THE FOLLOWING IS JUST ONE COMMAND

 

cat << EOF > /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

 

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

 

ctrl_interface_group=0

 

config_methods=virtual_push_button virtual_display push_button keypad

 

update_config=1

 

fast_reauth=1

 

device_name=Edison

 

manufacturer=Intel

 

model_name=Edison

 

 

 

 

network={

 

ssid="YOUR_NETWORK"

 

 

key_mgmt=WPA-PSK

 

pairwise=CCMP TKIP

 

group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40

 

eap=TTLS PEAP TLS

 

psk="YOUR_PASSWORD"

 

}

 

EOF

 

# THE COMMAND ENDS IN THE LINE ABOVE

 

systemctl restart wpa_supplicant.service

 

ifconfig wlan0 up

 

 

After entering those commands you should be able to connect to a specific network that you specify. If you would like to set this to be ran every time on boot, I'd suggest you to create a system service. You can read https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-111103 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-111103 in order to learn how to create a system service.

 

 

I hope this information helps.

 

-Peter.
