Using Bluetooth and Wifi Dongle On Beaglebone Simultaneously

Hello All,

I have been using raspberry pi for my project prototyping. I used Bluetooth dongle and wifi dongle for bluetooth connectivity and wifi connectivity respectively. Also used USB for arduino connectivity. This was possible because raspberry pi has 4 USB.

Now I am planning to use beaglebone in my project. But the beaglebone has only 1 USB and 1 OTG. Is it possible to use the wifi dongle or bluetooth dongle simultaneously with beaglebone.

Also, if someone can help me on using java for creating bluetooth server on beaglebone.

Appreciate any help.
Rahul

Hello Rahul;

I used a powered USB hub, which I highly recommend if you are using high power dongles.

As for Java, if you point your browser to the IP address of the BBB you will see a “Getting Started”

page with a link to the Cloud9 IDE on the BBB. This will allow you to write and test JavaScript

Enjoy;

Bill

Thanks William. Will try out this approach once I have my beaglebone.

It comes with a ReadMe card, just follow the instructions on the card J
