Recalbox 7.0

hidden Wifi SSID



  • I CANNOT CONNECT TO MY WIFI NETWORK WHEN SSID IS HIDDEN.
    I HAVE TESTED THIS BEHAVIOUR AT RECALBOX 3.3 AND THE LATEST 4 BETA, BUT BOTH OF THEM CANMOT CONNECT TO WIFI NETWORK WHEN WIFI SSID IS HIDDEN.

    ONCE YOU SHOW THE WIFI SSID, THE RPI CONNECT WITHOUT PROBLEM, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO HIDE MY SSID WIFI.

    HOW CAN WE FIX THIS BUG?



  • Hey @soyde

    Hidden ssids are not handled unless you make some modifications yourself to some files ... I had the solution a long time ago which involved tweaning the wpa-supplicant.conf file as far as i remember

    Ps : mind pressing caps lock to use lower case ? 😉



  • Thanks @subs, very interesting to know that is there any solution.
    Could you give me more information about modifications needed at wpa-supplicant.conf ?

    Thanks for your help.



  • Look at https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=25104 when the poster mentions scan_ssid=1

    BUT : i'm almost sure the conf file is generated at each boot, so you may have to edit /recalbox/scripts/reclbox-config.sh
    I can't check as I have no pi at hand until August. But i'm almost sure



  • hello, do you have found the config for connect to hidden ssid with recalbox?
