Raspberry Pi WiFi vs. Python

by lecnt on Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:15 am

Is it possible to use the WiFi module from Python? I'd like to build a product that would list all available WiFi connections, then the user would pick theirs and enter their password. Then the device would save this info and use it from there on. It would also need to be able to read the Mac Address of the WiFi module.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
LECNT

Technically, its possible - you would interface with the low level commands like iwlist. there might already exist such a thing, we don't know it but googling may help!
