iwlist wlan0 scan not returning any APs

Postby mbilloo » Thu Dec 24, 2015 3:04 am

Hi,

I'm using a Wandboard Quad and am having issues where the WiFi doesn't return any available APs.

When I run iwlist wlan0 scan on the command line I don't get any results. When I also run wpa_cli and do a scan (while wpa_supplicant is running), I do get CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS but when I check the results using scan_results, there are no results as well. The wlan0 interface is present and I even get a valid MAC address of the WiFi module. Can anybody give me a nudge in the right direction?

I'm using the Yocto image provided on the Wandboard site.

Thanks
Mohammed

OK, realized I actually needed an antenna to be plugged into the wandboard so I can get some sort of signal!
