BeagleBone Black WiFi Adapter Installation – Updated Tutorial

By ·Categories: I/O Embedded & IoT, I/O HUB·Published On: July 18th, 2014·0.5 min read·

Our original BeagleBone Black WiFi adapter installation tutorial has been extremely popular due in part to the popularity of WiFi communication as well as the challenging complications that the installation process can cause. In an effort to help those new to working with the BeagleBone Black WiFi adapter, or anyone struggling with installation, we’ve updated and expanded our BeagleBone WiFi installation guide with full step-by-step instructions, screenshots and tips to help you quickly and easily get your BeagleBone connected to your network using either the compact UWN100 WiFi adapter or the extended range UWN200 with 4″ antenna.

    I wonder if this adapter will work as a wifi hotspot? I want to connect a android tablet so it can’t be AD-HOC.

    Really have benefitted and enjoyed your tutorials.

    Thanks, Alan

    In the tutorial, the curl command points to an HTML file, which is causing the curl command to fail. The HTML points to another file.

    Suggest a revision number such that my comment can say revision blah has problem blah.
