USB to WIFI Converter
Some devices do not have WIFI capability built in. In the cases where a USB to WIFI converter is required, follow these steps to get connected to the network.

With Monitor

  • Connect the device to a monitor and boot up the device. Ensure the USB to WIFI converter is plugged into a USB port.
  • Log in using the standard Ardexa username and password (if you do not have access, contact Ardexa).
  • Type the following command:
1
sudo wifi-menu
Copied!
  • Select the WIFI network you wish to connect to.
  • When naming, ensure to remove the SSID, so the name is only the interface name. Select "OK".
  • An "Overwrite" error will appear, select "OK".
  • You should now be connected to the WIFI. To check, type the following command:
1
ip a
Copied!

Via SSH

  • If no HDMI or monitor is available, connect the device via Ethernet and determine the IP address using the following command through the Ardexa Remote Shell:
1
ufw allow ssh
Copied!
  • Select the WIFI network you wish to connect to.
  • When naming, ensure to remove the SSID, so the name is only the interface name. Select "OK".
  • An "Overwrite" error will appear, select "OK".
  • You should now be connected to the WIFI. To check, type the following command:
1
ip a
Copied!
