    Galileo (Gen 1) wifi connection and persistence


      Dear Friends,


      I succeeded to configure my Galileo (Gen 1) to connect to my WiFi network.

      I'm using WLAN Module N6205, WPA authentication with supplicant method and I have modified the /etc/network/interfaces as follow:




      # Wireless interfaces

      auto wlan0

      iface wlan0 inet dhcp

              wireless_mode managed

              wireless_essid any

              wpa-driver wext

              wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf




      The problem is that, after a reboot of Galileo, the WiFi is not connecting automatically.

      And if I want to get the WiFi working properly I have to type  ifup wlan0.


      At booting I can read the following messages that let me understand something doesn't work properly :



      [    8.554590] EXT3-fs (loop0): recovery complete

      [    8.559183] EXT3-fs (loop0): mounted filesystem with writeback data mode

      INIT: Entering runlevel: 5




      Can you kindly give me an idea to address this problem and let the wifi connection working automatically after the boot?

      Thanks a lot
