SSH into your Pi, using the username of 'pi-star' and either the default password of 'raspberry' or your own password if you changed it on the dashboard.

*. make the disk writable with the command 'rpi-rw'
 pi-star@pi-star(ro):~$ rpi-rw
 pi-star@pi-star(rw):~$ 

*. Become root
 pi-star@pi-star(rw):~$ sudo su -
 root@pi-star(rw):~# 

*. Add your WPA settings
 root@pi-star(rw):~# wpa_passphrase ABCABC xyzxyzxyz >> /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
Note that in this case the SSID is 'ABCABC' and the Passphrase is 'xyzxyzxyz'

*. Thats all there is to it, reboot your Pi so that it will take immediate effect
 root@pi-star(rw):~# reboot
