FAQ

How do I enable WiFi?

Overview

TinyPilot supports wireless networking, so you can connect it to your WiFi network and access the web interface wirelessly.

WiFi generally has worse noticeably performance than a wired Ethernet connection, so TinyPilot's WiFi adaptor is disabled by default, but you can enable it and join it to your network.

Enabling WiFi

Connect to your device over SSH, and then do the following:

  1. run sudo raspi-config
  2. Choose "1 System Options"
  3. Choose "S1 Wireless LAN"
  4. Enter your wireless SSID when prompted.
  5. Enter your wireless password when prompted.
  6. Select "5 Localisation Options"
  7. Select "L4 WLAN Country"
  8. Select your country from the list
  9. Select "Finish" to save the settings.
  10. When prompted to reboot, select "Yes"

When you reboot, if you type ifconfig, you should see the wireless connection listed under wlan0.

Reducing latency

Connecting to your TinyPilot over WiFi instead of a wired Ethernet connection usually increases latency. You can reduce latency by tuning your video settings.
