I'm Laurent new user of Proxmox in France.
i would like to install Proxmox on a small HP Prodesk 600 G1 which includes a Wifi Board, 16Gb RAM and SSD as a home lab.

i see during installation process that i can choose either Wifi connection or Ethernet connection. i want to have Wifi connection on this pc.
i can choose Wifi board but there is no interface to put SSID and passphrase.

i know that network interfaces settings are inside /etc/network/interfaces

Could you help me to setup correctly my Proxmox server.
if you have a default /etc/network/interfaces for Wifi only, it will be great.

Thanks for your support and your feedback
Wifi is problematic. Firstly its not as reliable, fast or secure as ethernet. Secondly most wifi chipsets won't offer all required features so for example you won't be able to bridge your guests to the wifi interface without using a complicated routed/NAT setup, which means your host may use wifi but your guests not.
