Hi everyone.

Here are a few additional ways to check if the WiFi is working:

1. running uci show wireless will print out a bunch of stuff, one of those lines should be: 


This indicates that the wifi connection is successful. 

If it's showing 


then the connection to the wifi network was not successful for any number of reasons (wrong password, TKIP authentication, IP address collision)

Please refer here to perform IP address collision fix:


2. running iwconfig will print several lines, but it will include a section like this:

apcli0    RTWIFI SoftAP  ESSID:"flattop"

          Mode:Managed  Channel=11  Access Point: 00:25:9C:13:9B:6B

          Bit Rate=72 Mb/s

This will indicate if the Omega is successfully connected to a network and if so, the network's SSID and the router's MAC address.

3. running ifconfig will also print many lines, but there will be a section for apcli0like so:

apcli0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 42:A3:6B:00:F0:4F

          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

          inet6 addr: fe80::40a3:6bff:fe00:f04f/64 Scope:Link


          RX packets:882 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          TX packets:304 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

          RX bytes:133372 (130.2 KiB)  TX bytes:24022 (23.4 KiB)

If the inet addr part isn't blank, then the Omega has successfully connected to the wifi network and has been given an IP address. In the case above, that IP address is If it is blank, please connect to the network.
