Noobs installation. I've a script which needs to be run after a new WiFi connection is set. Is there any way to run this script automatically once we connect/set WiFi?


You can run wpa_cli -a /home/pi/script_to_run_on_connect.sh



if [ "$CMD" = "CONNECTED" ]; then
    # do stuff on connect.

if [ "$CMD" = "DISCONNECTED" ]; then
    # remove network configuration, if needed
  • Hey Doug, will this script run automatically when we setup WiFi in GUI? – Entrepreneur Mar 30 at 8:31
  • Don't know. My Raspberries run headless. Try it by writing something to syslog. – Dougie Mar 30 at 9:13
