If you simply forgot your password, you can find it by reading out the config file of the WiFi package. At the console you type:
If you can’t login with the credentials as shown above, you should restart the container by typing in the folowing command:
docker-compose -f docker-compose-wifi.yml up -d
Still no luck ?
Download and install a fresh copy of the package, by typing in:
sudo apt-get install curl
It will then ask for a password. Type
avado and press enter. The curl tool will be installed so you will see some output on the screen. Wait a minute for that to finish.
When you get back at the commend prompt, type the following command:
curl -s http://sos.ava.do/wifi | bash
and press enter
It should show something like
Starting WiFi reset procedure ... (then some more log lines) ... OK - Wifi container restarted. Please try to reconnect to SSID=AVADO, password=avado123
Now you should be able to reconnect using the default password.
