I am a using gumstix overo firestrom COM and the pre-installed angstrom OS. I have set up the /etc/network/interfaces file and the wpa_supplicant.conf file to turn on wifi automatically. Right now the wifi can be turned on in two ways only:
2.using command from terminal
But the problem is the wifi does not get on when i power up the device. So i couldn't access to the device using wifi unless turning the wifi on using serial cable . Did anyone face similar problem?
you have to add an initialization script as described in this thread (step 2 of Nick Starzicki's message) to turn on properly your wifi connection during the boot. I had the same problem before and now it works perfectly...
