I'm not sure if I understood your description. Are you not able to access the Linux terminal using SSH?
Hi Diego, thank you for your reply
I can SSH to the Linux terminal just fine. In my mind there are three types of WiFi networks I want to connect this Edison to. A, B, and C. A and B work great. C, I can't get it to work.
A. My home. I connect to Edison with USB. I call configure_edison --wifi. Edison finds my 2WIRE598, and prompts me to enter the 10 digit number that I have as a key. It gets an IP address 22.214.171.124 and now I can put my Edison anywhere and I can SSH to it via putty to that IP address. Life is good.
B. My office. I connect to Edison with USB, I call configure_edison --wifi. Edison finds EngineeringAP, and somehow it knows to prompt me for both a username and a password. It gets an IP address 10.70.48.70 and now I can put my Edison anywhere and I can SSH to it via putty. Life is good.
C. Corporate HQ. I connect to Edison with USB, I call configure_edison --wifi. Edison finds AirTime, and it gets an IP address without me entering anything. I can't SSH to it. When I connect to AirTime with my laptop, it also connects directly, but when I open a browser, it pushes me to a Corporate Webpage where I enter a login and a password. Only after doing that can I actually do anything with my computer. It's similar to the interaction I have with the internet when I'm at the airport.
I'm trying to understand if there is a way I can set this up so I can get Edison on the Corporate WiFi. Can I edit wpa_supplicant? Are there other Linux shell commands I can run?
That seems to be related to the proxy settings. I'll suggest you to try using the following:
The user and the password are the same you are using with the laptop. You can check which are the proxy-server and the port in the proxy settings in your browser. Hopefully this will works.
