WiFi settings not remembered on reboot

Hello! So far I have enjoyed working with Hive but I have been having issues with WiFi. I have a Netgear A6210 which I installed the drivers for from Github. USB adapter is detected and I am able to connect to wifi using the wifi command and entering SSID/PW, but when the machine reboots, it doesn’t attempt to connect to wifi at all, I have to re-enter everything manually. Using my Windows PC I added the settings to wifi.txt like so…

WIFI_SSID=“xxx”
WIFI_PASSWORD=“xxx”

… but it doesn’t seem to be registering those settings on boot. Is there a way to disable ethernet and force wifi? or is there another file I can edit? Really don’t want to have to manually enter the info on every reboot.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I have the same issue, after restarting the rig. the wifi will not reconnect. need to manually run “wifi” again to get network id, and password to reconnect. Anyone has this issue and able to solve it? please post it here.
