I just got a Guru Plug and now trying to get it to connect to the wifi. I managed to connect to it as a access point but I'm struggling to get it to access my wifi. The first problem was that there wasn't any wlan.sh file in the /root folder (according to http://www.plugcomputer.org/plugwiki/index.php/Setting_GuruPlug_to_be_a_WiFi_Client
)... instead it was located in the /usr/bin directory... I run this, hopefully not causing any damage. I manage to scan for networks using iwlist and the one I'm hoping to connect to is found. (protected with wpa, switched it from wp2 as I wasn't sure if it'd work. if wpa2 work I'd appreciate instructions how to use it instead).
The issue is that when I'm trying to execute the command wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c my.conf -B (after creating the conf file) I get an error message saying that wpa_supplicant isn't found.
Also, if I try to install it via apt get I get the following errors:
sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
After I ran the wlan.sh script it disabled the access point access (which I guess it should) so I'm now connected via ethernet.
I'd greatly appreciate some help! I'm really new to Linux and my skills are limited.
ps. I've added a quite big heatsink to prevent the GP from overheating. So far it hasn't halted or rebooted though connected to a gb ethernet with wifi on. I did it straight away just to be sure as there was so much talk about the overheating so i can't say if it'd have been an issue. The sink gets quite hot though so most likely it would have.
