I have the BeagleBone Black Wireless, and I have flashed Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial to it. I am trying to make the WiFi to work but have so far failed. I have already tried to modify the /etc/network/interfaces file by adding the following commands for wlan0, without any luck: auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 wireless-mode ad-hoc wireless-essid BBB
In some forums, people suggest using “connmanctl”, however, there is no such preinstalled package in Ubuntu. Also I can’t download it to the BBBw, because its WiFi is not working. I tried connecting the BBBw to the internet via a usb connection, I edited this connection to “shared to other computers” but again, I had no Internet connection to the BBBw. To sum up, my question is: Is there an easy way to make the WiFi of the BBBw (with Ubuntu) to work, without the need to use the “connmanctl”? If not, any detailed information on how to install and use the “connmanctl” would be very much appreciated. I am including the whole /etc/network/interfaces file, with the part that I added, which appears after the comment “The following lines for the wlan0 were added by me”.
