Regarding: Zybot Project I am having an issue getting the USB WIFI Adapter to successfully connect to the internet. What is working: 1) Micro SD card Prepared for Boot on Zybo 2) Successfully able to boot and login to linaro 3) Connected a 4:1 USB hub to the USB port on Zybo and all ports are working - Tested this by connecting 1 mouse on all 4 ports, (one at a time) and the mouse works on all 4 ports 4) Camera is working fine, (motion is installed, server scripts copied to init.d and permissions changed) 5) Able to view Camera feed through IP Address but that address is issued through eth0 NOT wlan0 Hardware: 1) RA Link RT5370 USB Wi-Fi Adapter - linked for image - This adapter works flawlessly when I connect it to my PC. 2) Zybo, powered via 5V DC wall-wart power supply 3) Logitech C120 Webcam Note: Instead of connecting the zybo via HDMI, I have connected it to my router via Ethernet and am using SSH to send instructions In order to illustrate the problem: (lets look at the responses from terminal....) 1) When I type 'lsusb' (utility for displaying information about USB buses in the system) --> I get screenshot 1 - As you can see here, the WIFI adapter is detected fine 2) When I type 'ifconfig' --> I get screenshot 2 3) When I type 'lsmod' --> I get screenshot 3 - No kernel modules are installed 4) when I type 'sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces' --> I get screenshot 4 - which is detailing how I want the network interfaces to be set up 5) when I type 'sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf' --> I get screenshot 5 - Which is detailing the credentials of my network (you can see my password, it doesn't bother me) ISSUE: I am able to stream from the camera successfully through the wired internet connection (screenshot 2 shows that I have a valid IP address) The problem is getting the USB Wi-Fi Adapter to show up in 'ifconfig' so that I can use it for streaming. Doing so will allow me to detach the Zybo from the router's Ethernet connection and use it cord free on a battery pack. Please tell me how to set up RT5370 USB Wi-Fi properly on Linaro (for Zybo) and also connect to any network of choice
Ritsumeikan University uses ZYBOT to teach graduate students embedded systems. Professor Tomonori Izumi shared the materials in Japanese http://www.ritsumei.ac.jp/se/re/izumilab/lecture/16zybot/index.html
I am building the Zybot, I have loaded Ubuntu onto the Zybo and completed all the steps in the Server setup http://www.instructables.com/id/Setting-up-the-Zybot-Server/ , however I cant get the WiFi to work. I am able to get the same USB WiFi enabled on my PC which also has Ubuntu and can connect to my home network (wireless icon visible in top right on PC, USB WiFi works great). I have tried running nm-applet but get a bunch of error messages. The OS is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
