    Connect to wireless network via Ubuntu terminal on Joule board




      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 (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:






      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,
