Pynq Z1, version 2.4
Hello, I am trying to create a script file to run on boot and connect to my wifi network.
When I connect through the wifi file in common folder, everything works good.
I would just like to boot the board away from my router and not have to connect manually every time.
I am using the EASTECH Ralink RT5370 Raspberry PI WiFi Adapter.
Here are the steps I have done:
- I created a file in /bin/ called wifi_start.py
from pynq.lib import Wifi
port = Wifi()
ssid = “MyNetworkName”
pwd = “MyPassword”
- Actual name and password are substituted here
- Ran sudo crontab -e
- Added this line @reboot python3 /bin/wifi_start.py &
It seems the file is running but it the network is not connecting
Here is the output of ifconfig:
wlan0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
ether 1c:bf:ce:19:35:b2 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)
RX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
TX packets 0 bytes 0 (0.0 B)
TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
Anything I could be doing wrong?
