Internet Connectivity - Galileo


Naturally, an important part of Internet of Things projects is access to the Internet. The Intel® IoT Developer Kit (dev kit) contains the necessary components to connect the Intel® Galileo board to the Internet via Ethernet or Wi-Fi*.
The Galileo board has a full-height mini PCIe* slot that accepts Wi-Fi cards that use the same standard. You can use Arduino Wi-Fi shields, but the mini PCIe slot allows you to use comparably cheap Wi-Fi modules or even combined Wi-Fi/Bluetooth* modules like the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 135 adapter, which we’ll show you how to install below.
This document describes how to connect the Intel® Galileo board to the Internet, using the dev kit micro-SD image. We assume you have completed the steps in the Getting Started Guide  and have a serial connection to the Intel® Galileo board. If you haven’t set up the Intel® Galileo board with this image or do not know how to access the serial port of the Galileo from your development system, please refer to the Getting Started Guide before continuing.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
