ssh into the pi. pi@rpinetwork
Change the Network and Hostname
The name of the network and the name of the pi itself in this image is ‘rpinetwork’
If you want to change it to something else, follow these steps:
You will have to edit a couple of files and reboot your Pi.
find the following lines:
# Add local-only domains here, queries in these domains are answered # from /etc/hosts or DHCP only. #local=/localnet/ local=/rpinet/
Change ‘rpinet’ to whatever you want your computer to be called
interface=uap0 driver=nl80211 ssid=RPiNetwork hw_mode=g channel=7 wmm_enabled=0 macaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 wpa=2 wpa_passphrase=mypassphrase wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_pairwise=TKIP rsn_pairwise=CCMP
Change the ssid to change the wifi access point name. You can also change the pass phrase but be careful, if it’s too short it won’t work.
You must also change the host name of the raspberry pi, do it with
hostnamectl set-hostname newhostname
You will also have to edit
127.0.0.1 localhost ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters 127.0.1.1 rpinet 192.168.4.1 rpinet
Replace the two rpinet entries with the same thing you set with hostnamectl. They need to match.
