My old Topic New GHI BeagleBone Black Wireless received


#1

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.

As a note: I flashed a USB microSD and booted from it.

Just grab this build:

https://rcn-ee.net/rootfs/bb.org/testing/2017-01-04/lxqt-4gb/

The initial “connman/tether” setup I setup for out of the box was
sub-optimal for the BBBW…

(it assumes your making a wifi access point)…

flash the newest lxqt-4gb image from yesterday

Out of the new image, you can ssh into the wifi access point
(BeagleBone-WXYZ) and use connmanctl to connect to a 2nd access point
(while still connected to the BBBW thru wifi)…

Regards,

The image I flashed to the USB microSD was:
bbx15-debian-8.6-lxqt-4gb-armhf-2017-01-04-4gb.img

@ mcalsyn published a tutorial how to connect to a WiFi accesspoint

the same steps should work with the BeagleBone Wireless as well.
