WIFI config for unsecured network

I’m trying to connect to my MusicBox Pi on an unsecured WIFI network. I’ve left the wifi_password blank in the settings.ini file, but it isn’t showing up on my network…do I need to be doing something else with the wifi_password field to get this working?

Unfortunately musicbox doesn’t support unsecured networks through the normal settings.ini options. I’d suggest removing the wifi_network value you’ve set (as setting that will cause it to overwrite and destroy any manual changes you make to the wifi config). Then provide your own wifi config in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf. Something like:


I fought with fixed IP and WEP “secured” WiFi and it took me two days to remove the dust from my eyes…

In MusicBox 0.6, the /etc/network/interfaces file points to /etc/wpa.conf - so every change for no encryption or WEP has to be done either there or the interfaces file has to point to the standard path /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Btw.: someone “left” his WiFi credentials in wpa.conf :wink:
