Connecting your board to a network allows your host operating system to communicate with your board for programming and debugging purposes.
Do one of the following:
- Download and run the setup tool for the Intel® Edison board, then follow the on-screen prompts to connect your board to Wi-Fi*. This is a quick way to connect to your Wi-Fi* network using the setup utility.
- Connect your Intel® Edison board manually using Wi-Fi*. If you have access to a Wi-Fi* network, you can manually set up a network access to your Intel® Edison board and obtain an IP address using a serial communication session.
- Connect to your Intel® Edison board using Ethernet over USB. When you are in a busy or restricted network environment, you can connect to the Intel® Edison board using a micro-USB cable and a virtual Ethernet connection, known as Ethernet over USB. This allows you to program your board offline. Both Windows* and Linux* host operating systems support ethernet over USB.
