WIFI Configuration

How to configure WIFI manually?

Because it doesn’t work with the assistant for me. I tried following the nmcli way - but this won’t work, too (It does not scan for WIFI when integrated AP is active and you are connected with SSH over WIFI). So I’m looking for some way to configure the credentials using a simple configuration file - that’s at least something I can do mounting the SD card on my linux notebook.

Thank you and

Did you install Network Manager?
Did you try:
sudo raspi-config
and then configure network settings? it is very easy that way, it creates the wpa_supplicant.conf file for you…

the other way is the network interfaces file and manually creating wpa_supplicant config but I see no reason for this if you use the raspi-config menu…

Unfortunately im still stuck on this issue. Yes I created the config with raspi-config.
But it still boots into AP Mode, creating a random hotspot on the internal WIFI device.
Is there any way to stop the automatic AP creation?

Kind regards,
