Wicd validating authentication

Taken from the Raspberry Pi Foundation here: This method is suitable if you do not have access to the graphical user interface normally used to set up Wi Fi on the Raspberry Pi.

It is especailly suited for use with a serial console cable if you don't have access to a screen or wired Ethernet network.

Also note that no additional software is required; everything you need is already included on the Raspberry Pi.

To scan for Wi Fi networks, use the command auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp allow-hotplug wlan0 auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_#The following line specified in /etc/network/interfaces will activate and configure each 'default' network in wpa_with DHCP upon a successful connection to an access point (this line needs to be here for wpa-roam) iface default inet dhcp field has an address beside it, the Pi has connected to the network. Note that this may cause a small amount of background cpu usage, which can stop the CPU from scaling to lowest frequency.

If you have a Raspberry Pi 3, wifi is built into the pi, if you have a pi2 or earlier you'll need a wifi dongle, you can check to see if your wifi dongle is compatible here: There are 5 main methods to configure Wifi: You can access this from the Retropie menu in emulationstation (you can also access it from option 3 in the Retro Pie setup script): It will open into this menu: Choose your SSID from a list: Type your Wifi Password (You may need to wait a bit after you finish for the configurations to save) After it's done configuring you should see your wifi info in the original menu: If you wish to connect to wifi without needing an extra keyboard you can add a file to the boot partition of the sd card called source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet manual allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_allow-hotplug wlan1 iface wlan1 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_for changes to take effect.

If you have previously configured "PAWS-Secure" on your Mac running OS X and are having issues, you may find our Troubleshooting Guide for OSX helpful.

Make sure your i Pad is on the latest firmware version as some previous firmware versions had multiple issues with wireless connectivity.

NOTE: Performing additional configuration for your device (Steps 2,3,7, and 8A-8I) on the Troubleshooting Guide will improve your device's ability to connect to PAWS-Secure efficiently.
