Does anyone know how to connect the solo's IMX companion computer to the internet. I would like to have internet after ssh into the solo so that I may install additional packages. I know you can do this with solo cli but it is no longer supported.

Is it simply not possible without solo cli??

Thanks!!

It is possible but you need to be very conversant with the innards of the linux networking stack. You'll have to put the wifi card in promiscuous mode, scan for the AP you want to use, and then succesfully negotiate a secondary connection. Note that you'll need to know the commands work as once you switch to the new AP you'll typically lose your SSH session as the connection will break.

Hence the reason solo-cli was developed.
