Wireless connection


#1

Hi all,

I’ve read the instructions on how to set up a wireless dongle on the Raspberry Pi for PiAware with a monitor, but was wondering if there is a way to do it if one does not have access to an hdmi cable and monitor? Is it possible to set it up (i.e., connect to a wireless network) via SSH?

Edit: I see this is available with PiAware 3 now, so that answers that. Do I still need to config it so it auto connects if there’s a disconnect though?

Thanks :slight_smile:

Which version are you running.
V3 can be setup using the following info
flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/build/optional#wifi

V3 has a much better decoder/receiver(using the FA or similar RTL Dongle).

It should automatically reconnect with no special config needed.

Thanks all. Will update within the next few days :slight_smile:.
