          If you've plugged your edison via the OTG port into your computer, just run the intel_edison_setup tool (here) on your computer. If you have external power and have plugged your edison via the serial usb terminal (COM, port) then fire up Putty or minicom and run "configure_edison --setup" command.

            Hi Ayyappan91,

            Thank you for contacting us. You can connect the Edison to a Wi-Fi network without the need to connect the serial port. Since you don’t want to use serial in Putty, you can connect through SSH if your Edison and the device you’re using to connect are on the same network. If you want to enable SSH, set a password and connect to a Wi-Fi network you can look at the setup tool: https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-edison-windows-step2 .

            In regards to the application, you can use the Intel XDK to create your IoT application. You can see more information about the XDK and what you can do with it here https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-xdk .

            Let us know if this answers your questions.

            Regards,

              Thanks for the reply i have used the Run Setup tool but what i need is to be like the wifi wants to be connected like which we have been used in our mobile or laptop with communication involved when i power on the board it will search for the network and i have to select the wifi network and corresponding password for it with the third party application or intel application is that possible

              And any related XDK program or app related is available let me know its helpful for the upgrade to understand for me .

                Thank you for your reply. We want to be certain we understand your question correctly. Your goal is to log into the Edison and select which network to connect to from an external application running on your phone, is this correct?

                If that’s the case, then, for the first time it’d be necessary for you to log into the Linux terminal to make configuration of SSID, password and WiFi. After this configuration is done, every time the Edison boots, it’ll automatically connect to the network it was previously configured to connect.

                On following attempts, you can have a third party application, as you mention, to login into the Linux terminal from your mobile, for example.

                Let us know if this is what you were looking for.
