Any solution to this. Use case is configuring and testing the pi on your network and then sending it to someone else so they can connect it to their network.

For me a simple solution would be if the SD card boots and detects the "dietpi-wifi.txt" file then it overwrites your config. This way we could manually re add it if we need to change it headless.

dietpi-wifi.txt is working during initial boot only. It can't be used later on again.

Your use case would fit for this post viewtopic.php?p=13861#p13861

So the down side with this approach is the requirement on Linux. Most non-tech user are going to want Windows compatible solutions.

well you can connect to the device directly via a direct cable connection, login using SSH and configure WiFi
