Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.
In order to have internet access on Aero board it's possible to switch it to client mode so it connects to your Access Point instead of being an Access Point itself. We'll use the standard connman.
Here's the procedure:
- First you need to disable AP mode which is the default one:
nmcli c down hotspot
Connection 'hotspot' successfully deactivated (D-Bus active path: ...
nmcli c modify hotspot connection.autoconnect no
- Scan WiFi networks with nmcli dev wifi command. Example:
nmcli dev wifi
ABCD-C072-5 Infra 157 54 Mbit/s 79 *** WPA1 WPA2
MYOFFICEWLAN Infra 44 54 Mbit/s 75 *** WPA1 WPA2 802.1X
LabWLAN Infra 44 54 Mbit/s 75 *** WPA2 802.1X
AndroidHotspot Infra 44 54 Mbit/s 74 *** WPA2 802.1X
OfficeWLAN2 Infra 1 54 Mbit/s 74 *** WPA2 802.1X
- Connect to one network by giving the desired ssid and passkey. From the example above we can connect to ABCD-C072-5 with:
nmcli dev wifi connect ABCD-C072-5 password 12mysecretpassword34
With this configuration it will try to autoconnect to this network every time you boot Intel Aero board.
