Topic: Possible to use a custom wpa_supplicant.conf file? (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Anyone know the wifi setup well enough to tell me how I can specify my own wpa_supplicant.conf file? /tmp/run/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf is overwritten when "wifi" command is run, so I'm not sure where the source of this config is stored.


To answer my own question:
/etc/config/wireless under 'config wifi-iface' corresponds to the /tmp/run/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf file that is created when "wifi" is run.


2 thoughts;-

1.  Changes SSID of your router make it unique, at least for testing purpose.
2. Update  the "/etc/config/wireless"

Code: [Select]

config wifi-iface
option device 'radio0'
option network 'lan'
option mode 'sta'
option ssid 'My_Wireless_Router'
option bssid 'c0:25:5c:97:6a:b0'
option encryption 'psk'
option key 'wirelesspassword'


Thanks - this is helpful.

Now if I could only get wpa_supplicant to run with the -d option so I can see why it's getting deauthorized all the time..
