[How-To] 802.11n RTl8192cu module on the Beagle Board Black

Postby lemoneer » Thu Jun 27, 2013 3:06 pm

I am new to both Arch Linux Arm and embedded Linux, and I am documenting my adventures for others in a similar situation. Please see Lemoneer Wifi for my write up on getting the Ada Fruit wifi module (based on the RTl8192cu Chipset) working.

Did you know once you convert to netctl, install dialog and wifi-menu makes it easy to connect/configure wifi?
Same as you to make it start on boot
systemctl enable netctl-auto@wlan0

Thank you for your note. I did notice that dialog was an optional install, and I tested it out after my initial setup. I was attempting to follow the spirit of the Arch Linux wiki's wifi entry where it is recommended that you do the manual process so that you understand what is going on behind the scenes so you are better able to troubleshoot issues that occur. In addition, it may be beneficial to some to install as few packages as possible.
