nmtui into your Terminal, then u can easily add a new WIFI Connection via the Interface.
Another method is to use

* SSID MODE CHAN RATE SIGNAL BARS SECURITY * Orange-Pi-wifi Infra 11 54 Mbit/s 100 ▂▄▆█ -- A13-Wifi Infra 6 54 Mbit/s 30 ▂___ WPA1 WPA2 2WIRE533 Infra 10 54 Mbit/s 44 ▂▄__ WPA1 WPA2
Now u can connect to a Wifi without Password via:
sudo nmcli device wifi connect '(your wifi network name/SSID)' ifname wlan0
and to a Wifi with Password via:
udo nmcli device wifi connect '(your wifi network name/SSID)' password '(your wifi password)' ifname wlan0

ping -c 5 126.96.36.199
