Security type of wireless to enable roaming.
Just got one of my Raspberry Pi Zero W installed with ArchLinux ARM for my projects. Once it was up and running using the guide at ArchLinux Arm I had to configure wireless for it. Below are the instructions I used to get it working using
Copy the examples wireless template from
cp etc/netctl/examples/wireless-wpa /etc/netctl/wireless
/etc/netctl/wirelessto change the wireless information
Security=wpato enable wireless roaming.
ESSIDto your WiFi SSID.
Keyto your WPA Key.
Priority(optional) to set preference. Higher number is given preference over lower numbers.
Save and quit this file.
Start the profile
netctl start wireless
Try to ping to an external host or to your local gateway to ensure everything works fine.
If everything works, enable the profile on system startup.
netctl enable wireless
There you have it, getting wireless to work on an Archlinux Raspberry Pi. Happy connecting! :smile:
