Title: Mini+Wifi
Post by: JaG on November 13, 2012, 04:13:41 pm
Hello,

I have bought iMX233-mini+wifi module last week. I try to install debian and arch linux. Both boot without a problem, but I can't connect to internet. I have contacted support at olimex, but they write me that here is a problem with the driver of this integrated wifi module.

Yesterday I bought usb to ethernet adapter (it looks like this https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/A13/USB-ETHERNET-AX88772B/), but it doesn't work too. This adapter use dm9601 driver on my laptop with ubuntu 12.04

I'm looking for help to connect my device to internet. Is anyone able to connect his mini to internet (wifi or cable)?

Regards,
Boyan Peychev

Here is my kernel image 3.7-rc4 with wifi enabled:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/rfnmzdbcu21pfgf/sd_mmc_bootstream.raw

To install bootstream onto SD/MMC card, insert card on your host debian machine and type:

sudo dd if=sd_mmc_bootstream.raw of=/dev/sdXY

where X is the correct letter for your sd or mmc device (to check, do a ls /dev/sd*) and Y is the partition number for the bootstream

In my system this command run as:

sudo dd if=sd_mmc_bootstream.raw of=/dev/sdb1

After boot, check with iwconfig, card should be wlan1

Hope this help

Hi Fadil
we fisght the same issue but with OLinuXino Micro. Can we use the same kernel? We are using Usb WiFi dongle from Olimex.

Thanks,
Ivan

I think USB dongle has same wifi chip as olinuxino-mini, so you can use same kernel.

Hi Fadil,

Are you sure about that? I try with this, but I can't boot. Maybe it is only your boot partition, not the kernel?

Hi Boyan,
Boot partition is composed from bootlets, kernel and device tree file. Please refer to my article https://github.com/koliqi/imx23-olinuxino/blob/master/Building%20a%20kernel%20%20for%20the%20OLinuXino.md to see in more details what contain file sd_mmc_bootstream.raw.
