No more Wifi on some test images (BBAI)

Hi all,

I’ve been working with the BBAI for a few months now, and have had some success configuring pins/buses using this image:

Only after having been blocked out of my usb/ethernet ports did I realize that the default wifi access point at is no longer available. Out of curiosity, I checked the most recent iot image (am57xx-debian-10.6-iot-armhf-2020-11-16-4gb.img.xz) and got the same result.

I honestly couldn’t find much documentation on BBAI wifi, but digging a little, I noticed that the SoftApp0 interface is managed in:

  • /etc/default/bb-wl18xx
  • /etc/dnsmasq.d/SoftAp0
    Weirdly, these files are virtually identical to to the files in the latest recommended iot image on the Beaglebone web page (with functioning wifi).

Can anyone point me in the direction of some documentation/resources for the wifi device on the BBAI that could help me in this situation?



That's a bug... please add it to:


Thanks, I will!
