Recently I activated the wlan for guests provided by my AVM FRITZ!Box. In the interface I saw a QR code. Scanning this code with a mobile phone allowed my guests to connect to the wireless network effortless. Since one of them asked me how to generate this code yourself, I researched this subject and here are the instructions:
- Use the following template:
- Insert your credentials, e.g. SSID=WirelessParty, TYPE=WPA, PASSPHRASE=mySecret!
- Install qrencode:
- Generate your QR code:
qrencode -o wlan.png WIFI:S:WirelessParty;:T:WPA;:P:mySecret!;;
- Print and share the code:
