I just tried setting up WiFi for the first time and am at an impasse. Here's the story:
1. With configure_edison --setup I gave my system a name and password, and then got to the WiFi setup. It showed all the familiar access points in my local environment, including my router. I selected my router and entered the long WPA2 passphrase. Looks good at this point:
Configure Edison: WiFi Connection
Scanning: 1 seconds left
0 : Rescan for networks
1 : Manually input a hidden SSID
2 : personal_network-guest
3 : personal_network
4 : FT3SH
5 : MzMuMu
6 : TARTARUSNET_RPT
7 : TARTARUSNET
Enter 0 to rescan for networks.
Enter 1 to input a hidden network SSID.
Enter a number between 2 to 7 to choose one of the listed network SSIDs: 7
Is TARTARUSNET correct? [Y or N]: y
Password must be between 8 and 63 characters.
What is the network password?: ******************************
Initiating connection to TARTARUSNET. Please wait...
Attempting to enable network access, please check 'wpa_cli status' after a minute to confirm.
2. In a browser connected to the same network, I try going to http://192.168.2.9 but browser just hangs.
3. On Edison, I ping 192.168.2.9 and get response, but ping my router at 192.168.2.1 or anything else other than the Edison and get NO response:
root@fswap:~# ping 192.168.2.9

4. wpa_cli -i wlan0 status looks good:
root@fswap:~# wpa_cli -i wlan0 status
The bssid shown is indeed the mac address of the wireless part of my router.
5. My router lists a DCHP client with the correct mac address of the Edison, and the correct assigned IP address of 192.168.2.9.
Everything looks good to me, except I can't communicate wirelessly to or from the Edison. I'm at a complete loss.
