Sertial timed out while configuring Wifi


I was receiving a serial time out error while configuring my wifi:

? Should I scan for nearby Wi-Fi networks? (Y/n) Y
? Should I scan for nearby Wi-Fi networks? Yes
? Select the Wi-Fi network with which you wish to connect your device: DP_NET
? Security Type: WPA2

Immediatly after connecting with Putty, it would ask the password for wifi and finish the process:
