Hi Guys, I would like to check whether intel Edison is it possible for the intel Edison to automatically connect to the wifi when it is power on. I am currently using SparkFun Arduino Block and Base Block together with intel Edison

Hi chaos39,

 

 

This feature is available in the latest image and some of the previous ones as well. In my case, I'm using the latest one, where cat /etc/version outputs 201606061707 and the Arduino expansion board. Once I connect to a network, every time I use the Edison, the connection to that same network remains. You can download the latest image here https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads .

 

 

Let us know if this works for you.
