This wiki is for anyone trying to use a WiFi adapter on the Beagle Bone. It is originally created by Michael Junge, EE senior at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, class of 2012. As new information is discovered please feel free to edit this wiki.

Required Hardware

You will need a WiFi adapter from Adafruit. (I had to buy mine, however as the class expands Dr. Yoder pay potentially have a few to hand out for experimentation.)

You will also need the A6 hardware version of the BeagleBone. This does not work with the A5 version. (again at a later date this may not be an issue)

You will finally need the A5 software version of Angstrom found from EBC Exercise 03 Installing a Beagle OS. Again make sure it is the A5 software, this does not work with the A6 Rev.

Required Package Updates
