    issues with Gailieo Wifi connections


      I once had Wifi connection work with 0.75 SD image following exactly Intel Galileo Meets Wireless - Malinov Family Web Presence . But since the other day I cannot connect to Wifi anymore. I have very similar problem with this post Intel Adv-N 6235 Wifi not connecting except for the fact that I don't have any processes of wpa_supplicant. I thought it could be a bug in 0.75 SD image. So I upgraded to Alex's 1.00  Galileo Linux Images (I guess there must be plenty of bugs yet to be fixed so Intel hesitates to announce the official one..). After that, I can start wlan0 without errors apparently. But it only works when eth0 is connected. I found people have the same problem here( http://superuser.com/questions/539107/wlan0-goes-down-when-eth0-not-used ). I tried Nmap that shows the two ip address of eth0 and wlan0 have the same MAC address.


      Any ideas how to fix the wifi problem? Thank you very much in advance. I am so frustrated about the wifi problem. I spent a lot of time troubleshooting issues like this and did not get anything of my project done. Maybe I have to be an expert in embedding linux to be able to use Galileo...

          Hi Brickmaker

          Could you provide the dmesg output on a txt file? In that way we could have a better picture of the issue. Something else you can try is a fresh install of the SD card image, since something might got corrupted.

            Hi all,


            I am also on the 0.7.5 image and the official release board firmware. I am getting intermittent crashes relating to the wifi. I've searched for a solution but haven't seen similar issues so am wondering if it is something between my nic and router, or a OS/driver/firmware error or a hw problem. The console output I get when a crash happens is:
