Did some investigation on how to set up the BeagleBone with a wifi stick.
The one we got is: TP-LINK TL-WN721N
Not good news but let’s hope: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/beagleboard/jFE1LaHiLwI
Nice tutorial but the problem is that it seems that only this chipset has a default driver in the Angström repo.
The device itself shows up without any problems:
root@beaglebone:~# lsusb Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0cf3:9271 Atheros Communications, Inc.
After my investigation, Árpi will take over this problem while I’m busy with assembling and testing the rover. We got another wifi stick which may work after less hacking.
This is gonna be the design logo of the robot. Thx to Nelly 🙂
