Would it be possible you provide the dmesg output? This is to see if the Wifi card is being detected by the Galileo.
Where would I find the dmesg output? - I'm just using arduino?
I have tried it on a 2nd board and the same error is present. I re installed arduino, wiped the SD card and put new wifi drivers on it and changed boards with no success.
You need to enter that command in Linux, and it’s used to obtain information on the hardware. Enter in the command console and type dmesg , then copy the output into a txt file and attach it over here.
Is there alternative method to do this in windows? If not I will install a linux OS and get back to you tomorrow.
Thanks for your help
To get the dmesg you can do it from your windows computer. You need to connect to Galileo via Linux console. Take a look at this post for options to connect. https://communities.intel.com/thread/46335. Once you are able to connect to Galileo via Linux console. The user name is “root” and no password is required. Then just type “dmesg” in the console.
Thanks for the help JP, I got it working.
I am having this problem as well. I have an Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 135 attached to a Galileo Gen 2 board.
It has been set up as shown in the "Setting up Wireless Card" in the Makers forum.
I get a "WiFi shield not present" message.
There is an interesting few lines when you do dmesg.
I am wondering if the firmware message is telling me something like I need to update the firmware in the wifi card?

Are you booting from the SD card? Also please attach the content you have in /lib/firmware/and the output of the command dmesg | grep iwlwifi.
Thanks for response JP. I got it working late last night.
I'm not booting from the card but I plan on setting that up later.
First I realized I had the wrong card number in original post. The card is a Centrino Advanced-N 6235.
The card required iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode, /lib/firmware contained iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode.
I got a copy of iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode and added it to /lib/firmware.
That fixed it.
