wpa_supplicant.conf

Reference info for wpa_supplicant.conf:

I got tired of looking through pages of documents to find the information I mostly use for setting up wpa_supplicant.conf on my Raspberry Pi devices. So, I'm putting it here.

If you are looking for a way to setup DHCP or Static settings for your networks follow the example under ### Other Options ###.

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev update_config=1 # # home network; allow all valid ciphers network={ ssid="home" scan_ssid=1 key_mgmt=WPA-PSK psk="very secret passphrase" priority=5 } # This will connect to any open wifi connection # if no other connection is available. network={ key_mgmt=NONE priority=-1 } ### Other Options ### network={ ssid="SCHOOLS NETWORK NAME" psk="SCHOOLS PASSWORD" id_str="school" } network={ ssid="HOME NETWORK NAME" psk="HOME PASSWORD" id_str="home" }

The following is part of the ### Other Options ### setup. Edit /etc/network/interfaces with iface school inet static and iface home inet dhcp in it so it looks something like this:

auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf iface school inet static address gateway netmask iface home inet static
