Configure your CM3-PANEL-7-POE to connect to WiFi network, USB or board adapter 5.8Ghz

This articles explains how to configure our board to connect to our WiFi network. This procedure will work on Linux, Windows and Mac computer.

Insert the Raspbian MicroSD in your PC and open its content.

Using an ASCII editor create a file called /boot/wpa_supplicant.conf with this contents:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev


Replace IT with your ISO country code, your_SSID with the name of your wireless access point name and your_PSK with your WiFi password.

Save and reboot your CM3 device with this MicroSD. If you need to change the WiFi access repeat this procedure. Note that after the first boot this file will be deleted.
