This article outlines how to connect your 2014 Series 1 to a Wi-Fi network. If your 2014 Series 1 has received an upgrade to 2015 software, use instructions that pertain to the 2015 Series 1 or Series 1 Pro.
- SSH into your Series 1. If you don’t know how, you can learn all about how to do so in this article. Replace XXXX with your four digit serial number. 2014 Beta Customers should start with and include the “b” when replacing the “XXXX.”
- the default password is also “ubuntu”.
- Type in the following command and hit return:
- sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
- You will be required to enter the password again. Do so and hit return. When typing the password, the password will not appear on the screen, which is normal.
- Nano, a text editor, will open. /etc/network/interfaces is the directory of a file that we need to edit. We will now edit the interfaces file as shown in the example below.
ssid="Your Wi-Fi Network Name"
- You may find multiple places to make this modification.
- Exit by pressing control+X, and pressing Y to save your changes on the way out.
- Back in the main SSH prompt, send the command sudo reboot. You’ll be kicked off SSH, which is no matter because you’ll have been successful configuring the Wi-Fi.
- Wait up to 10 minutes, and your Series 1 should be on the Wi-Fi network that you specified. If it isn’t, completely power off and on your Series 1.
