Sergey's blog should be incorporated into the "Getting Started Guide"
I really don't see how anyone gets the Galileo going without referring to it.
After all this time, I still don't know - does Sergey work for Intel?
I have been. Does the Galileo support N-Wireless networks? My router is a dual-band N router, and there is not an option in the router configuration page to set it to work with 802.11b/g.
I solved it. Here's what I did:
I used an ethernet cable (as described here: Re: Using Galileo Linux over Ethernet(Telnet)) to SSH into my Galileo using puTTY.
I then logged-in as "root" and created my wpa_supplicant.conf file (as described in Malinov's "Intel Galileo Meets Wireless" blog post).
Then, I typed the command "ifup wlan0" and waited for it to connect to my network.
Once I thought it was connected, I pinged www.google.com and it worked!
I am sorry - the question does not sound right. There is no support in the Galileo for WiFi - at all, other than general mini pcie support.
Everything about WiFi comes from the specific hardware you plug into that port, and the Linux drivers you choose or get by default.
In my case, my board is an Intel N6235, dual stream, dual band a/g/n. Using the Linux driver it does very well on my N band router. Has bluetooth too - got to try that someday.
