Hi
I tried many things that were suggested. The only thing that kinda worked for me was adding:

Creating "/etc/modprobe.conf" with the content

options libertas_sdio helper_name="sd8686_helper.bin"
options libertas_sdio fw_name="sd8686.bin"
 
But it only works if I first login via serial and then type reboot, so still I need a serial connection.
Any ideas why?

Hi Nick,

Creating "/etc/modprobe.conf" with the content

options libertas_sdio fw_name="sd8686.bin"

makes sure that the kernel driver module "libertas.ko" sends the
firmware to the device via the call "request_firmware" defined in
"linux/firmware.h" and loads the helper file in time. File names
(sd8686.bin, sd8686_helper.bin) are provided to "libertas.ko" by
"libertas_sdio.ko" which takes the parameters "helper_name" and "fw_name".

Just try the command "modinfo libertas_sdio" on your gumstix... You will
find the two possible module parameters at the end of the response.

Creating "/etc/modprobe.conf" this way helped me to get rid of running
"ifup" manually after configuring the wireless stuff for a newly created
"omap3-console-image".

Creating "/etc/modprobe.conf" has nothing to do with the correct network
configuration which you definitely need anyway...

I am just curious whether this approach helps anybody else too...
