I am using the IGEPv2 board, alongside with IGEPv2 expansion board and running Linaro 12.0 through SD card (kernel : 2.6.37+).
I am trying to communicate with the board, through wifi, but I don't see the "IGEP_XXXX" network. If it is related with the expansion board, I have enabled at the igep.ini the "buddy=igep0022" command.
Is it possible to be done with Linaro? or the feature works only with the Yocto firmware only?
Thanks a lot!
Accepted Answer0Hi pau,
I have 2 questions:
1) I installed the wireless-tools and I added at the /etc/network/interfaces file
auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp
However, is it ok to create the IGEP_XXXX network ? I don't want to access Internet with the board but connect other devices to the board through the IGEP_XXXX network.
2) IF I do:
ifconfig wlan0 up
I get SIOCSIFFLAGS: Permission denied
Any ideas about these?
Accepted Answer0Hi liamd5,
In the last post, I forgot to attach my interfaces file:
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet static
Try to connect to IGEP MYNETWORK network using a static IP between 192.168.13.1 to 192.168.13.254.
If you want to use dhcp, you will need to install and configure a dhcp server to IGEP. Look the udhcp program from Yocto as an example
