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:192.168.1.103 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::40a3:6bff:fe00:f04f/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:882 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:304 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
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 192.168.1.103. If it is blank, please connect to the network.
