I found somebody with another Overo system with Wifi.

My SD card boots fine and detects wlan0 on his system, so unless running on a chesnut somehow "enables" wifi where it's "disabled" on a Tobi it seems I have a bad gumstix.

I apologize in advance for regurgitating so much information, I'm just trying to help speed things along.

I've looked for a two nights now and can't find a solution to unstick me on this problem.  Thanks for any help you can give.

 

I have an overo fire and a tobi board.  It just arrived from gumstix last week and is running the factory firmware that came with it.

 

I'm trying to use the wired ethernet controller as well as the wifi controller.

 

Out of the box, the wired connection seems to be happy as eth1

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:15:C9:28:D9:C1

          inet addr:192.168.50.110  Bcast:192.168.50.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

 

The problem is getting the wifi up.   I've modified my /etc/network/interfaces as shown below but when I try

 

"ifup wlan0"    I get the following error:

Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :

    SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.

Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :

    SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.

SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

wlan0: unknown interface: No such device

SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device

SIOCGIFADDR: No such device

SIOCSIFBROADCAST: No such device

wlan0: unknown interface: No such device

Failed to bring up wlan0.

 

I am trying to join a simple non-encrypted ad-hoc network w/ static IPs.

 

 

I have the following modules loaded on a clean boot:

root@overo:~# lsmod

Module                  Size  Used by

bufferclass_ti          3555  0

omaplfb                 8304  0

pvrsrvkm              126292  2 bufferclass_ti,omaplfb

ipv6                  219860  18

option                 16236  0

ads7846                 8515  0

usbserial              30552  1 option

root@overo:~#

 

I've also tried modprobing various other apparent wifi modules as I could find, but none seemed to help.

------------------------------------------------------------

here is my interfaces file.

 

/etc/network/interfaces

root@overo:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

<SNIP>   I can promise that every line after is a comment line and the stock file.

 

I thought this device was available over usb, but when I run

root@overo:~# lsusb -t

Bus#  2

Bus#  1

`-Dev#   1 Vendor 0x1d6b Product 0x0002

root@overo:~#

 

there's nothing there.

I do have a blue and green LED lit however.

 

Here are my start up messages.
