Change WiFi

ok so this may be a silly thing to ask but how do I change the wifi on my purse connect installation? I've moved house and now have different wifi. Do I have to start again or can I change a file on the sd card?

RE: Change WiFi

Hi,  sorry we do not have any easier wifi setup interface at the moment, you'll have to use the usual raspberry pi ones. This is just a short summary of steps to do, if you want more detail just google raspi wifi setup, or ask if you get stuck.

Put a new wpa_supplicant.conf file onto the portion of the SD card visible under windows/mac. The file should look something like this

country=US
update_config=1

network={
ssid="HOME1"
psk="HOME1_PASS"
}

Then put the SD back and turn on the pi, it should connect to your new wifi.
Thanks for trying out PrusaLink and sorry for the late reply.

From MacOS terminal I cd'd to the filesystem for the prusalink.
vi wpa_supplicant.conf
paste text from answer
same the text file and eject the micrsd
install in prusalink and reboot everything.  ---> NO IP

RE: Change WiFi

Your post does not mention changing any details in the file, but I assume you did.

Anyway, there is another problem, if you did not set your wifi up when flashing, it could be blocked by default. I've also seen this trick refuse to replace an existing file. The most reliable way would be to flash again through the rpi imager and set the wifi up there.
