I have kernel 3.8.13-bone86 (with debian wheezy) and beaglebone black wireless,
I installed firmware about wl18xx,
I boot from sdcard without problem like a standard beaglebone black,
I load the module wl18xx (and modified /etc/network/interface),
But, impossible to see the wlan0 ...
Someone have experience about this ?
Correct, 3.8.13 in it's current form doesn't support the wl18xx.
3.8.13 is eol, time to move on...
Same problem with kernel 4.1.38-bone24 !?
