[beaglebone] Unable to use WP8548 with ConnMan

Hi Robert,

What kernel and wpa_supplicant configuration changes are required to
enable a cellular connection and WiFi on Linux 14.4?

Or, do you have a page describing what is required to set up a
cellular connection with/without Connman, and a WiFI connection using
connman on the BeagleBone black with 14.4?

Have the kernel prompt and all interfaces working to my knowledge but
need to validate cellular connectivity and WiFi.

thx,
Tracy

Sorry, i had not replied, as I have not used any cellular device's
other than thru ppp..

Regards,

For that project with cellular, i used ppp for the cellular uplink.

connman was used to create a wifi access point.

Such that devices could connect to it and get network access.

Regards,

sudo connmanctl tether wifi on ${wifi_ssid} ${wifi_password}

Regards,

Lately I’ve been pondering on how to make both 3G and Ethernet work via connman. pppd and connman tend to bicker and overwrite each other’s resolv.conf entries, which is a bit of a pain if one grabs the default route and the other installs its local DNS servers :slight_smile:

Anyway, as far as I can tell connman relies on a component called ofono to manage modems and do dialup. This, in turn, requires support for your 3G modem in the form of some driver. Unfortunately I can find zero practical documentation on ofono and - judging by updates in recent years - it seems to be abandonware. Hmm.
