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. You might be able to use this configuration for other cards by making substitutions as shown.

null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe mac80211
null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe cfg80211
null::sysinit:/sbin/modprobe rt73usb (Replace this with the module for your WiFi board)
null::sysinit:/bin/sleep 5
null::sysinit:/sbin/ifconfig wlan0 <IP address> netmask broadcast <Broadcast address> up
null::sysinit:/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 essid thedynaplexnetwork (Replace with your network's essid)
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 <Put your WEP key here>
