wificonfig has bee updated to v1.3 and includes the following changes:

- Now supports network names with spaces.
- Displays the Pi's IP address upon running the utility (this will be blank if you're not connected or if Wi-Fi is disabled).
- Added the ability to set a Country Code for the Pi 3 B+.
- Better error handling.

Instructions on how to update the utility are on the first post.

Does not seem to work with dashes in the network name.

So I was doing some tinkering with my DreamPi this weekend as we were setting up everything after moving, and I found that (at least in my case) you are unable to connect to networks with a dash "-" in it. After changing the name to exclude the dash, everything worked fine.

Hmmm, strange. Just tested it and it worked fine for me. Added a dummy network with a dash in it and checked to make sure it was added correctly, and it was. You must have done something wrong.

Can I set up DreamPi without a keyboard? For example, edit the WiFi password offline under Windows directly on the SD CARD?

Update:
With the official image "Raspberry Pi OS" I can set the wifi password without a keyboard. Just save the file wpa_supplicant.conf on the SD card:

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
ssid="<YOUR_SSID>"
psk="<YOUR_Password>"
}

So there is no need for a USB keyboard for the setup. And an empty file called "ssh" on the SD card starts an ssh server on the Raspberry Pi.

So far it has not worked with DreamPi 1.7.

Update #2:
Done. I set up WiFi via SSH using wificonfig and do not need an external keyboard on the Pi. :)
