Raspberry Pi based PLC family devices have Wi-Fi wireless connectivity by default.
It uses the two most common frequencies: 2.4GHz and 5GHz. It also uses the IEEE 802.11.b/g/n/ac bands. And, to connect them to the Wi-Fi network, you have to follow some specific steps.
The key points to consider are as follows:

To connect this PLC with your Wi-Fi network, you must modify the wpa_supplicant file inside the Raspberry:
sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
And you must configure the file with the configuration parameters of the Wi-Fi network (it may change depending on the specific configuration of each case):
sudo service networking restart
Or you can reboot the system to apply the changes:
