As mentioned earlier, all the projects we will be developing can use either a wired or wireless connection to access the Internet. To use a wireless connection from Linux, we'll have to do some configurations. With your board powered off, attach your Wi-Fi adapter just like we did it in the Connecting through Wi-Fi section in Chapter 3, Monitoring the Board Temperature. Power your Galileo on with the Ethernet cable attached and access it through SSH just like the we did it in the preceding section.
In the SSH shell, type
lspci -k | grep -A 3 -i "network". Your Wi-Fi adapter should be printed, as shown in the following screenshot:
If your board doesn't appear printed, you'll need to install its drivers.
This image is installed with the embedded connection manager connman, allowing you to easily set up your wireless connection. In the SSH shell, type in the
connmanctl command and follow these steps:
enable wifito activate...
