Setup

For WiFi connection:
Option 1:

Before inserting the SD Card into your Raspberry Pi you need to find the “octopi-network.txt“ file on the SD card from and computer of laptop.
To add in your WiFi details open the file using a text editor, make sure you use a program such as Notepad++, Atom or VSCode as they don’t tend to mangle the file without first warning you. Avoid editing the file with other programs such as WordPad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac OSX) as they will enforce their encodings on the file making it fail to work.

Once you have the file open in the editor of your choosing
Find

## WPA/WPA2 secured
#iface wlan0-octopi inet manual
#    wpa-ssid "put SSID here"
#    wpa-psk "put password here"
Replace With

## WPA/WPA2 secured
iface wlan0-octopi inet manual
    wpa-ssid "put SSID here"
    wpa-psk "put password here"
    
That's it, now you can save your changes and insert the card into your pi.

Option 2:

You can insert the SD Card into your Raspberry Pi with a monitor, keyboard and a mouse and set you wifi up manually as seen here.
