Hello All,

I feel bad for asking this as there are so many threads in the history already related to this topic. I received my Gallop43 and Overo FE earlier this week and for the life of me I cannot seem to get wifi to come up. I haven't messed around with bluetooth, but I do see bluetooth messages in the logs. I also see some mailing list messages about possible changes in the SDIO interface on the new modules??? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

COM: Overo Fire Extended
Expansion Board: Gallop 43
Pre-built image: omap3-console-image-overo.tar.bz2 (16 August 2011) [As well as many of the other existing in nand, stable, development pre-builts]


1) Make a bootable SD card and boot with the u-boot.bin, MLO, uImage, and rootfs mentioned above.
2) Boot and connect to the board via serial connection (USB)
3) Diagnostics;
    a) ifconfig output -> (only lo exists)
    b)
