    Wireless not auto starting on Gen 2 with 6205 card


      I have the Galileo Gen2 booting from SD with the Intel SD Linux.  I also have the Intel Adv. N6205 wireless card.  The card works but I have to bring it up manually using the ifup wlan0 command.

      The wireless comes up ok and connects to the router. It works fine with static IP and dhcp.  The problem is that it will not start automatically.  I have to use eth0 to connect via ssh and run ifup wlan0.

      I do have the auto wlan0 in the interfaces config file.  From everything i have read, what I have is correct and it should start automatically but doesn't.


      I would greatly appreciate any light anyone can shed on this.  Here is what I have in the interfaces file:


      # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)


      # The loopback interface

      auto lo

      iface lo inet loopback


      # Wireless interfaces

      auto wlan0

      iface wlan0 inet static






          wireless_mode managed

          wireless_essid any

          wpa-driver wext

          wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf


      iface atml0 inet dhcp


      # Wired or wireless interfaces

      auto eth0

      iface eth0 inet dhcp


      # Ethernet/RNDIS gadget (g_ether)

      # ... or on host side, usbnet and random hwaddr

      iface usb0 inet static






      # Bluetooth networking

      iface bnep0 inet dhcp
