How to setup WiFi on Raspbian Jessie Lite

Raspbian Jessie Lite has no GUI, so how on earth do we configure WiFi on it? It's easier that you might think!

All you need to do is edit one file!

sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

We want the file to look like the screenshot below. You'll need to swap "YOUR_SSID" and "YOUR_PASSWORD" for your WIFI name and password. Once done, save & close down nano. 

pi_wifi_commands

That's it! Reboot your Raspberry Pi with sudo reboot 

While you're here, why not check out the WiFi dongles we have available..
