Change WiFi name & password

Last updated 3 months ago

Probably the first thing you'd like to change in the Rover is the Wifi network name and password. It's easy - let's do it.

1. Connect to the Rover console

IP: 10.0.0.1 | Login: pi | Password: raspberry

2. Modify hostapd.conf file

You need to enter a .conf file which runs the access point settings. Type:

sudo nano /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

Here you can modify two lines: ssid and wpa_passphrase. Better don't touch the rest.

By default it will be:

ssid=TurtleRover-[serial-number]

or

ssid=TurtleRover-XXYYY

And wpa_passphrase:

wpa_passphrase=password

To save the changes - click ctrl+o and ENTER [or RETURN].

After you reboot your Rover Wifi network will be named and secured accordingly to the modifications.
