Hi all,

I am using a BBB running BBBAndroid in a prototyping project. I have built BBBAndroid and made the changes suggested by Keith Conger in an earlier post (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/beagleboard/wifi/beagleboard/tHXTzJhH_Qc/1dIcYqFlj5gJ). 

On the surface everything seems to be working as I can enable/disable wifi and see all networks. However, when I try to connect to a network. the status goes from 'Connecting' to 'Obtaining IP address' and gets stuck there for a while. It then goes back and forth between the two statuses indefinitely. 

I am using a Plugable USB adapter based on the RTL8188CU(S) chipset (http://plugable.com/products/usb-wifint)

Has anyone else experienced something similar? 

Thanks!
Nicklas

Hi Nicklas,

Try adding "ap_scan=1" to the bottom of your wpa_supllicant.conf.  Also until Andrew has time to merge my changes.  You can get them from http://development.thecongers.org/home/bbbandroid-bluez  I also have a build posted.

Thanks Keith,

Tried that, and also built BBBAndroid from your manifest over the weekend but still have the same issues. 

What brand/model wifi adapter are you using? Starting to think it might be a h/w issue...

Sorry for the delay.  The two devices I tested were both rtl8192cu devices.  I'm currently using this BT/Wifi combo device: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005QUQPDA/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I should also mention you may need to adjust the kernel modules loaded in your init.<device>.rc file for your device.
