Unable to configure Wi-Fi on myRIO

Go to solution

Whenever I try to configure it in NI MAX, I do not see the option to broadcast an SSID or connect to a network. There is only one "TCP/IP" option (see attached screenshot). Please help


Let me know if you need any additional details.

I ultimately ended up in the SSH shell and tried the following to enable the wlan0 adapter:

sudo ifconfig wlan0 up


This yielded:

ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill


I don't understand why this was set. In any case, once I got here, the issue was trivial to resolve.


sudo rfkill list  # to see what's going on
sudo rfkill unblock wifi; sudo rfkill unblock all

sudo rfkill list  # confirm that the change worked


Followed by a reboot.
