How-To for setting up WPA over SSH, for those times when the Web Portal just won't work out for you....

Setup WPA over SSH

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

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

*. 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
