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.
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?

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.
