WiFi Setup

On my network, I’m set up as ip 192.168.1.*. To turn your wifi on, do the following.

sudo -s
(become superuser/root)
cd /etc/network/
(Note the wifi inet address, if it is already set, you are done!)
tether wifi off
enable wifi
scan wifi
(at this point you should see your network appear along with other stuff, in my case it was "AR Crystal wifi_f45eab2f1ee1_6372797774616c_managed_psk")
nano interfaces
(or whatever editor you like)
remove the comment # from the wifi lines so it now appears like
##connman: WiFi
connmanctl> tether wifi off
connmanctl> enable wifi
connmanctl> scan wifi
connmanctl> services
connmanctl> agent on
connmanctl> connect wifi_f45eab2f1ee1_6372797774616c_managed_psk
connmanctl> quit
note that you will need to fill in your own network data
