Moved to [[AXIOM Beta/Manual#WiFi Access Point Setup]]
Connecting a USB wifi dongle (that supports Soft-AP) to the AXIOM Beta USB port allows controlling the camera via wireless connection
Check your wifi card:
Turn on wifi card:
ifconfig wlan0 up
Search wifi essid/hotspot name:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Setting up Essid and password:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "yourhotspotname" key yourpassword
iwconfig wlan0 essid "yourhotspotname" key s:asciikey
WPA2 (tested and working)
update mirrors database (it is required to connect to the Internet via Ethernet):
pacman -Syy
install wpa_supplicant:
pacman -S wpa_supplicant
Configuration with wpa_passphrase - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WPA_supplicant
create basic configuration file
MYSSID = name of your wireless network
passphrase = password to connect to your wireless network
wpa_passphrase MYSSID passphrase > /etc/wpa_supplicant/example.conf
ip link set dev wlan0 up
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/example.conf
if nl80211 driver does not support the given hardware. The deprecated wext driver might still support the device:
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/example.conf
dhcpcd wlan0
Autostart connect https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/netctl
copy config from example:
cp /etc/netctl/example/wireless-wpa /etc/netctl/wireless-wpa
edit the config for you network (interface/ESSID/key):
nano /etc/netctl/wireless-wpa
First manually check that the profile can be started successfully with:
netctl start wireless-wpa
If the above command results in a failure, then use
journalctl -xn
netctl status profile
to obtain a more in depth explanation of the failure. (profile might already been started)
netctl enable wireless-wpa
This will create and enable a systemd service that will start when the computer boots. Changes to the profile file will not propagate to the service file automatically. After such changes, it is necessary to reenable the profile:
netctl reenable wireless-wpa
