My old Topic New GHI BeagleBone Black Wireless received


About a month ago I posted about not being able to connect to WiFi with my BeagleBone Black Wireless.

Yesterday I ran across a image update and now the Connman System Tray
shows the SSID names on my network. I have not tried to do anything yet as I have promised my granddaughters I would have dinner with them today.

Here are the links to the image update that worked for me.

(BeagleBone-WXYZ) and use connmanctl to connect to a 2nd access point
(while still connected to the BBBW thru wifi)…

Hi, willgeorge
@ MrJohnSmith already found out, how to connect the OSD3358 over WiFi

@ mcalsyn published a tutorial how to connect to a WiFi accesspoint
the same steps should work with the BeagleBone Wireless as well.
Kind Regards
