This tutorial assumes that you already have a Microsoft Azure account set up.


We are ready; connect your device to your PC, and let’s go.

How to set up Wi-Fi on your Azure Sphere device

Open an Azure Sphere Developer Command prompt and enter the following command:

Azure Sphere Wi-Fi

With the show-status parameter, you can see the current status of the Wi-Fi interface and the MAC address of your device.

Using the add parameter, you can enter the data of your Wi-Fi connection.

Using the show-status command again, you can check the status of the connection, the properties of the connection, as well as the IP assigned to your device.

Other parameters to consider

If you want to delete the current configuration, you should use the delete parameter indicating the network ID.

To scan the available networks, use the scan parameter; this will show you a list with the basic characteristics of the available networks.
