What do the wifi modes in network setup mean?


as an example, Balena docs give this:

ssid=My Awesome WiFi Ssid

In this example, what would mode=infrastructure do or mean?

Hey @matthewcroughan

infrastructure means you’re connecting to a WiFi access point or router (the most typical configuration). Another value would be adhoc where you’re connecting device to device - say a laptop with a shared internet connection, for example.

Is there any documentation on the different modes?

@matthewcroughan you can check the Network Manager docs here, there’s a section where all the different modes are listed: https://developer.gnome.org/NetworkManager/stable/nm-settings.html

Thanks greatly :slight_smile:
