Create Wifi connection without re-burning

Hi all, I looked around but couldn’t quite find the info I was hoping for.

I have a long running application with a device that is all sealed up and mounted remotely. We have a new Wifi connection available nearby that we didn’t have before. Is it possible (via nmcli perhaps) to create a on demand connection profile without burning a new image and doing a service call? :crossed_fingers:

fwiw, we have a backup LTE connection in case of ethernet failure but the data is expensive, so my hope is to have connection failures cascade in preference order from 1) ethernet 2) wifi 3) lte. We have ethernet and LTE live now, but I cannot figure out how to add wifi without needing to access the device.

Hello @barryjump
You can add a new WiFi connection by creating a connection file in /mnt/boot/system-connections as described here - Network Setup on balenaOS 2.x - Balena Documentation
