Here are the WiFi adapters we know work with the Hammer Board:

1) Edimax EW-7318Ug

For this to work properly, you need at least kernel 2.6.25-rc8 with the Hammer Patch. This adapter uses the Ralink RT73 chipset, so the rt73usb driver must be enabled in your kernel.

Here is a known working configuration for this adapter. These lines are added to your inittab file.

null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe mac80211
null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe cfg80211
null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe rt73usb
null::sysinit:/bin/sleep 5
null::sysinit:/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 <IP address> netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast <Broadcast address> up
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid thedynaplexnetwork
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 channel 11
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 enc on
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 key <your wep key here>
