As i am not able to bringing up the wifi module that is connected on imx8 Nano evk board, running below commands to bring up the interface, included wifi-tools to my .bblayer.
is there any other packages need to be add .bblayer to bring up this ?
root@cu:~# ifconfig wlan0
ifconfig: wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
How is this wifi controlled ? In general
1 - check the interface, generally sdio, by dmesg, check the driver is up and device is detected.
2 - check finally ethernet driver fro wifi is running/loaded (lsmod)
3 - check for firmware load error messages, as dmesg | grep err or "dmesg | grep firm" and messahes around that
I'm having same issues in 2023 with the 8MNANOD4-EVK and the v6.1.1 Linux Distro version. I go through module activation with:
modprobe moal mod_para=nxp/wifi_mod_para.conf
After this, dmesg show:
Seems driver exists but its not as verbose as i would like. Unfortunately, interface its not appearing
I tried to set the wifi network credentials in wpa_supplicant.conf and then updated with the command
wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -D nl80211
But seems not to brings up the interface
I tried this process with full and multimedia image in the application images provided. I also try v5-15.71 and v5.10.52, same results as above.
Someone have any idea what could be happening? Thanks!
You can check this post on the Murata forum: https://community.murata.com/s/question/0D55F000096S0K5SAK/imx-8m-nano-evk-wifi, which talks about a similar issue.
You can also refer to this Blog on the Murata forum: https://community.murata.com/s/article/Drill-down-Steps-to-Bring-up-1MW-on-i-MX8M-Mini-EVK. This describes the process of bring up the on-board Wi-Fi module on i.MX 8MMini. The procedure would be similar for 8MNano.
refer to the latest yocto release note, which Supports Murata 1MW (CYW43455) Wi-Fi/Bluetooth on i.MX 8M Mini and i.MX 8M Nano. so what WIFI module do you ues? and what bsp do you use
