Hi all,

Does anyone faced the problem with the Yocto network connection manager (connman) and wilink8 (wl18xx wi-fi+bt) module?

The problem is that the connman does not connect to Wi-Fi network with wilink8 module. There are no issue with old wilink6 module (wl12xx).

I do

ifconfig wlan0 up

iw wlan0 scan

successfully in the terminal, but when I press "Enable/Disable" and "Scan" buttons in connman window, nothing happened.

I have installed wpa_supplicant package.

Connman is in the red circle.

Hello Ivan,

Where do you get the wLink8 driver ? for what Kernel version is the driver made for?,  what version of BSP are you using and for what I see you are using QT, are you using a freescale board?,  We have test the freescale BSP with the Wl12xx driver as you mention also and do not have the problem so I think it is in the way the driver of Wlink8 has been made or requirements for it.

Hello jamesbone,

I've got wilink8 driver source code from git://git.ti.com/wilink8-wlan/build-utilites.git and build it for my 3.10.53 Linux kernel. I am using latest Fido (1.8) FSL-BSP with our custom i.MX6Q-based board.
Could You help me to figure out the problem?

Best regards.
