It seems you left out the link to the guide you are following, are you following this guide https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23148 ? I managed to connect my Edison to wifi using Windows 7 but the procedure should be the same. Just to confirm, are you able to see the list of wi fi networks such as in step 11 after typing the command “configure_edison --setup” and setting up the name and password?
Just as a point of comparison, my /etc/wpa_supplicant file looks like this:
group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
eap=TTLS PEAP TLS
Try following the getting started guide and make sure you have completed all previous steps correctly.
Yeah, missed a ctrl-v there! The instructions are the ones you linked to at: Edison Getting Started Guide - Mac
Ignoring that though, I'm up to step 4 - configure wifi and work my way through to point 7: 'Type in “configure_edison --setup" and press Enter.
I step through naming the edison, setting the password and then configuring the wifi. It's during the configuration step that it throws the errors I mention in my original post.
So no, I never see a list of wifi networks when I get to the setup wifi step in configure_edison.
In this post https://communities.intel.com/thread/56536 several users comment on errors similar to yours and discuss how they resolved these issues. Take a look at it and try the suggestions posted.
CMata - it was a looong path, but I eventually got it all to work. Thanks for checking in.
It started here being unable to find wifi networks, then I think a flash didn't work correctly and I couldn't use screen to configure it, then I had to search for an alternate method to flash it, then eventually it came good and everything is working as expected.
Most of my experience ended up over here:
