Configuring WiFi for the Intel Galileo Board

The Intel® Galileo development board is Intel's first product in a new family of Arduino*-compatible development boards featuring Intel® architecture.  Follow the steps below for guidance on configuring WiFi on this board.


Make sure you have the latest FW installed:

  • Follow the initial direction to install firmware for the wireless adapter from here (Sergey Kiselev's Blog).

Mount the antenna and check for configuration:

1.  Mount the antenna and the adapter plate as shown in the following images

NOTE: The metal adapter (blue) needs to be connected as shown. The two "prongs/arms" need to go from "above to below" the board. The other end of the metal adapter will then click into place on the two plastic "pillars" present on the board.

2.  Run the example:

  •  WiFi->ConnectWithWPA 

to check for connectivity.
