    Connect to wireless network via Ubuntu terminal on Joule board

    YanivSheffer

      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 (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
