Configuring the WiFi

After you have installed the Android Things OS on your Raspberry board or Intel Edison, we can configure the WiFi connection. This can be done using the adb shell. Open a terminal window or a command prompt and write the following:

adb shell am startservice
-a WifiSetupService.Connect
-e ssid <Your_WIFI_SSID>
-e passphrase <WIFI_password>

Where Your_WIFI_SSID is the ID of your WIFI and WIFI_password is the password you use to connect to your WiFi.
