Id like to be able to connect to wifi access points directly within
cockpit instead of having to launch a terminal and use nmcli commands.
I dont get any wifi connection options. Is there something missing on my system?
There is nothing missing. Cockpit's Networking page simply does not support
wifi devices. There has been an old attempt to do that here:
But it was never finished.
If someone from the community wants to pick this up, we will gladly provide
assistance. The main requirements are (1) it does not add new UI to the page
*if* the machine does not have wifi devices, and (2) it gets integration tests
to make sure this keeps working (that's possible with mac80211hwsim and
hostapd, demo in https://people.debian.org/~mpitt/talk-simulate-hardware/wifi.sh
