Then i type the iwconfig command,then it shows like this below

root@beagleboard:/# iwconfig

You need to configure wireless network either by writing your own start-up script or manually by iwconfig commands.
Read iwlist and iwconfig help.
First try with commands manually then writing script would be much easy.


Hello Pratap,
  You might try this suggestion posted on this forum by Koen Kooi.
"In the connman case you
should do one of the following:

* use update-rc.d to disable the startup scripts
* edit /var/lib/connman/defaults.conf and add something like
* edit /var/lib/connman/dev_<your mac addres>.conf and change Policy
to manual
* use the connman gui to have connman ignore the interface

Hi Omkar.

Do you any guide for getting USB WiFi working on Beagleboard with Android on it? I have been searching for a complete guide but not able to find one.



I am using angstrom distro.
And USB WiFi (Belkin) is working fine.
For that I simply downloaded firmware of rt73 chipset.
Also OE kernel supports ZD as well as rt chipset.
