I left the system running overnight - no wlan0 ever appeared. Looks like something else. Maybe hardware? I may try to RMA my gumstix monday.

I' ve had the same problem with the firestorm, but I've noticed if I leave it booted for a while (a few minutes) wlan0 will eventually be found as a device. I never tried to solve the problem since I don't really use the wifi. I am curious to see the solution as well (it may have been solved already... haven't looked).

Thanks for the reply.

If i do 'iwconfig' or 'ifconfig -a' i should be able to see wlan0 listed, no? I think that's a prereq for /etc/network/interfaces.

After reading your email, I added the following to /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug wlan0                                                          
auto wlan0                                                                   
iface wlan0 inet dhcp                                                        
        pre-up /sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid any
        wireless_mode managed

as expected, upon ifup or reboot, i get:

Configuring network interfaces...Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.
Failed to bring up wlan0.

I've been looking through the mmc kernel driver, i don't know where else to look. Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks again,
Woody

Hi,

It seems your drivers are loaded correctly. In that case, all you need to do is edit the /etc/network/interfaces file and configure your wlan interface. Did you do this? 

Describe the whole process please.

All,

I am having a heck of a time with the wifi on my new overo IronStorm. The wlan0 device is never created! I've tried the prebuilt images (including the 2010 image mentioned earlier in this list), as well as a debian image and a custom busybox image, using many different kernels. When i load the libertas_sdio driver, all i get is:

cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain                       
lib80211: common routines for IEEE802.11 drivers                               
libertas_sdio: Libertas SDIO driver                                            
libertas_sdio: Copyright Pierre Ossman

with no mention of mmc1. I think my card is not being detected. Is this a hardware issue? should I just RMA my COM and wait for another one?

Thanks for any insight you may provide.
