WiFi/BT card for AI-64

Does anyone know of a WiFI/BT card that works? I’ve installed this

image

But it doesn’t leap into life automatically … maybe it will never work, or maybe I need to load drivers?

Any ideas?

That one should work, i had one plugged into one of the prototypes for the last few months…

What shows up when you run:

lspci

Regards,

Yeah, I think this is it …

debian@BeagleBone:~$ lspci
00:00.0 PCI bridge: Texas Instruments Device b00d
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88W8897 [AVASTAR] 802.11ac Wireless

but then


debian@BeagleBone:~$ ifconfig wlan0
wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
debian@BeagleBone:~$

Device is there … I’ll dig about and figure it out!

Thanks again for excellent help.

3: mlan0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state DOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 80:c5:f2:c8:ba:61 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    altname wlp1s0

Awesome, glad it worked!

Yeap, some adapters are on M.2 are wlan0 or mlan0!

In the default images, that’s why you’ll find both of these ready to go:

/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-mlan0.conf
/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf

Now to track down antennas with the right connectors - not u.fl as I thought, but IPEX MHF4 !! Looks the same, but smaller … and therefore probably almost impossible to attach :slight_smile:
