I'm trying to set up a NAS using my RPi3 and Open Media Vault. I've run into some trouble with the setup as my current lodgings don't offer a wired internet connection, only wifi. Given the RPi3 has native wireless network capability I didn't think this would be an issue however I can't seem to figure out how to set up the NAS using OMV wirelessly. All the literature seems to point to a wired connection being neccessary, but in this day and age this can't be the case surely?
I've got to the point where the RPi boots successfully but gets stuck when it tries to assign itself an IP address on the network as it isn't connected. Is there a way to make the device connect to the wireless network automatically on boot, so it can give itself an IP address on the network and I can go on to complete the NAS setup on the browser client as intended?
Any help is much appreciated!
