Connecting to Wifi

Dear all,

this is maybe a simple question,

I am using the STMP1 SOM together with the evaluation board, but I cannot get Wifi to connect to an existing network.

When I use:
iwlist scan
several networks are shown, so I suppose the hardware is working:
wlx0cc65568400a  Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 24:D3:F2:9F:AB:DD
                    Protocol:IEEE 802.11bgn
                    Frequency:2.432 GHz (Channel 5)
                    Encryption key:on
                    Bit Rates:144 Mb/s

But when I try
wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlx0cc65568400a -D wext
the result was
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
rfkill: Cannot get wiphy information
ioctl[SIOCSIWAP]: Operation not permitted
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument

I first tried without -D wext, but then the response was
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
nl80211: Driver does not support authentication/association or connect commands
nl80211: deinit ifname=wlx0cc65568400a disabled_11b_rates=0
wlx0cc65568400a: Failed to initialize driver interface
wlx0cc65568400a: CTRL-EVENT-DSCP-POLICY clear_all

nmcli does not even show any listed networks, and can also not connect.

Does anyone have an idea how to successfully connect?


I think it should work fine after this line "wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlx0cc65568400a -D wext" The first result seems like few warnings, but it should work. This guy had same issue:
