Hi,

The drivers that come in the SD card are the ones for the Centrino N-135 and Centrino N-6205. If you want to buy this module that comes with the Centrino N-2230 you will need to use the driver from the wlwifi-2030-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz and install it on your SD card. ->https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

 

If you want to use http://www.amazon.in/ThinPc-Centrino-300mbps-Bluetooth-Antenna/dp/B01BBS1774?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=... this kit I suggest you to follow the instructions in http://www.malinov.com/Home/sergey-s-blog/intelgalileo-addingwifi "Configuring Wireless In Linux", as I said in your case you would need the wlwifi-2030-ucode firmware.

Regards,

Hi great thanks for your instant reply, and thanks for the driver and tutorial too.

I just want to make myself sure that whether the product will work with galileo gen2, because as an embedded developer I purchased many some things which came unsupported with the platform I was using (say arduino and Raspberry pi camera), and remained useless and a waste of money.

So with the driver is this product a worth to buy, is it compatible with the galileo gen2, i am scared

Pls suggest, should I buy it.

Pls reply soon, so that I can order it soon as the stock is limited

thanks in advance

thanks

Hi,

I was able to get a PCIe Centrino N2230 and test this.

 

I am using a Galileo Gen2 and downloaded the https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/galileo/downloads EGLIBC microSD card image. (filename iot-devkit-prof-dev-image-galileo-20160525), if you have not use a EGLIBC image with your Galileo board before, take a look at this link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1 https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-galileo-windows-step1

After this, I got in the terminal console and typed ls /lib/firmware, you can see in there all the drivers for the different modules the image has; the iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode is included so you will not need to install it by separately.

 

To configure wifi with this configuration I ran the commands

 

>connmanctl >enable wifi >scan wifi >services >agent on >connect wifi_HashA_HashB_managed_psk Insert the passphrase for the WiFi network. >quit

You shouldn't have problems using the Galileo Gen2, the N-2230 and the latest EGLIBC image.

Regards,
