Ok, the first command you used “uname -a” gives you the same output as me so we’re good there.
I then used the configure_edison –wifi command and I connected successfully.
Attempting to enable network access, please check 'wpa_cli status' after a minute to confirm.
Done. Please connect your laptop or PC to the same network as this device and go 192.168.10.130 or http://edison.local in your browser.
If I run the ifconfig command I have both the wlan0 and usb0 interfaces shown. What is the output of your ifconfig?
If you can only connect after shutting down the usb0 interface and doing configure_edison –wifi maybe the ip address you are getting from your router conflicts with the one previously configured for usb0. Check your router dhcp settings.
Running ifconfig, both devices are shown active. I'd print the output here but unit is temporarily offline.
usb0 comes up on 192.168.2.15, wlan0 typically on 192.168.2.52 or 53. Hmmm this might be the problem Earlier I was using it on a different router which was configured for 192.168.0.x subnet and that did work OK.
Since I don't need the usb0 network interface at all, I did this, on advice from a colleague:
systemctl disable network-gadget-init.service
This appears to disable usb0, that is it doesn't appear when running ifconfig after boot. Routing table is nicely set up for wlan0 without any further hassle.
