    Editing these 2 files should work.

    1) /etc/network/interfaces

    sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces

    auto lo
    
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    
    auto wlan0
    allow-hotplug wlan0
    
    iface wlan0 inet manual
    wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    
    iface home inet dhcp
    iface other inet dhcp
    
    iface default inet dhcp

    2) /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
    update_config=1
    
    network={
            ssid="NETWORK1"
            #psk="WIFIKEYS"
            psk=197ee6a0f3bbb0ee1530cf248fdf876bc1385eb935a4b1dd548e4c43dd8b817f
            id_str="home"
    }
    
    network={
            ssid="NETWORK2"
            #psk="WIFIKEYS"
            psk=59d9627450791660c06434770cadaa0f446d07bbe22cd1d35795ddf7c335f7dd
            id_str="other"
    }
    
    network={
            key_mgmt=NONE
    }

    3) Optional: Parameter ‘psk’ can use ASCII passphrase (commented out above), but you can save wpa_supplicant a little time by pre-computing the PSK keys with wpa_passphrase.

    wpa_passphrase "NETWORK1" "WIFIKEYS"
