    WIFI n135 with galileo board1

    Ashling_Qin

      I was start to do the Galileo with N-135 wireless card. But I have some confuse now.

       

      when use N-135 wireless card with Galileo board, how to make sure that the Linux image have create successfully?

      what I have do is copy the image-full-Galileo folder into MICR-SD card than put in to SD-slot and than power on. try the "blink" example on board and power off, wait for mins than power on. After near 1 min, the led blink success. It's a right way?

       

      And on some Blog Intel Galileo Meets Wireless - Malinov Family Web Presence said that Intel supplied SD card image only includes iwlwifi-135-6.ucode and iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode firmware. It means need to add the iwlwifi-135-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz into the SD card and add into image-full-Galileo folder?

       

      THANKS A LOT.

          Hi Ashling_Qin,

           

          If you are using the SD-Card Linux Image provided in this site https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-22226, the image includes iwlwifi-135-6.ucode and iwlwifi-6000g2a-6.ucode, this means if you are using the N-135 you don’t need to install the firmware, because it is already included in the image. If you build your own image I think you need to do this manually, if you need the drivers you can get them from this site http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi, then just put them in /lib/firmware. In order to test if you are booting up from the SD card you can upload the Blink sketch as you mentioned. Then when you reboot your board as soon as the board finish booting up it should resume the blinking. I hope to have covered all you questions.
