Change WiFi name & password


Modify the access point configuration file

Modify the 'hostapd.conf' configuration file by typing:

sudo nano /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf

An editor interface should appear.

Modify the ssid and wpa_passphrase fields.

ssid corresponds to the access point name (default: LeoRover-XXYYY) and wpa_passphrase is the network password (default: password).

Type Ctrl+O and Enter to save the modified configuration and Ctrl+X to exit the editor.

In order to apply the modifications, you need to restart the access point. To do so, just type:

sudo systemctl restart hostapd


In some cases, the changes may appear only after you restart the Rover
