Hi Sebastián
You should enter your SSID and password in the file /settings/network in the 
SD-card (mounted as /boot/settings/network). The file is well documented and 
easy to follow. In the bottom of the file are:
which you should edit. Then reboot the Pi. Hopefully it'll all work. Monitor 
the system log (with "logread" for problems.) The standard WiFi 
tools "iwconfig" and "iwlist" are available for trouble shooting as well.

However, for using Raspberry Pi 3 I recommend the development version of Nard, 
which has better Pi 3 support than v1.00.
