1. SSH into your Pi, using the username of 'pi-star' and either the default password of 'raspberry' or your own password if you changed it on the dashboard.

 [email protected](rw):~$ 

3. Become root

 [email protected](rw):~$ rpi-rw
 [email protected](rw):~$ 

4. Add your WPA settings

 [email protected](rw):~# wpa_passphrase ABCABC xyzxyzxyz >> /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
  • Note that in this case the SSID is 'ABCABC' and the Passphrase is 'xyzxyzxyz'

5. Thats all there is to it, reboot your Pi so that it will take immediate effect
