WPA on Raspberry Pi(rateBox) running PirateBox 1.0.2 OS
June 18, 2015 05:54PM
I'd like to set up a password for the WiFi network my PirateBox generates. I'm using the PirateBox installation image based in Arch, a distro I have no familiarity with. Through tutorials I managed to get everything set up and working, but now the only tutorials I see for setting up encryption are for Raspbian (my system has no /etc/network/interfaces file to edit).

How do I do this on the Arch version of PirateBox? (If it's of any consequence, I'm using the Edimax EW-7811Un)

Thanks!
SG

Hi SG,

I changed /opt/piratebox/conf/hostapd.conf on the archlinux distro.

interface=wlan0
driver=rtl871xdrv
ssid=PrivateBox
hw_mode=g
channel=1
ieee80211n=1
wmm_enabled=0
wpa=1
auth_algs=1
wpa_passphrase=first123
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP
macaddr_acl=0

Just give it a try.
