USB WiFi Detection on runtime.

Hello everyone;

We are currently work with the Intel Galileo rev2 Board. We currently use the Realtek USB dongle for WiFi connection.

 

We use the hostapd and wpa-supplicant service to handle the WiFi. These both service work fine on bootup time but we are still stuck up for run time support.We want to enable the run-time USB dongle support for WiFi means the service start when USB dongle plug in Galileo board and stop the service on unplug the dongle from Board.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Nikunj_Patel,

 

 

We have moved your thread from Wireless to the /community/tech/galileo Intel Galileo Support Community. As this is not an issue with an Intel Wireless Adapter.

Hi Nikunj_Patel,

I'm sorry to hear that my last suggestion didn't work. Have you try creating a system service? Please follow this link were it creates one for a blink example only that instead of using the blink code you will write the code to connect to WiFi through your USB dongle, so when the device boots up it will connect automatically to Internet.

Hi Nikunj_Patel,

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Galileo Platform.

I would recommend to follow this thread . I think what you are missing is adding "auto wlan0" in the Wireless section "/etc/network/interfaces". Please let me know if this helped you solve your issue.

I will be waiting for your reply. Have a nice day.

Best Regards,

-Jose
