Raspberry Pi WIFI config

Every time I have to setup the WIFI in a Raspberry Pi I google how to do it. I mostly remember what to put on the /etc/network/interfaces config file, but I need to check out what goes on /etc/suplicant/suplicant.conf. There are many options. Instead of setting up all posible options, start with this. Chances are it would just work ok.

File: /etc/network/interfaces.conf

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    auto eth0
    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    auto wlan0
    allow-hotplug wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    iface default inet dhcp

File: _/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpasupplicant.conf

    ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
