Got error When Create Access Point with FX30 and IOT card

#1

Hi all,

I’m using FX30 and IOT Card http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/2267053.pdf , I tried to create Access Point with instruction here ( WiFi access point section ) https://docs.legato.io/latest/wifi_toolsTarget_wifi.html
I got a error " ifconfig: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device (-19)"
I rebooted my device but it’s not useful
State Led in IOT card are good

Hi comcom,

Seems like same issue discussed below, can you check?

Hi comcom,

Please see the FX30 Talon Wifi Application Note which is posted on the Source:

Hi @lotam,

It is not same issue, thank you for your support

#5

Hi @cchenry,

Thank you for your support, How to check exactly "module name " which I 'm using such as WP75xx or WP8548?
I aslo want to update firmware R14.04.02 for FX30 BY USB CABLE what should i do now? https://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/airlink/software_downloads/fx30-firmware/fx30-firmware/
Thanks

Hi comcom,
The FX30 3G uses the WP8548.
You have 3 options to update firmware via USB:

  1. For Windows, install and use the FDT2 tool (search the Source)
  2. For Linux, install and use swiflash (search the Source)
  3. Use the Legato tools (host or target) fwupdate (search legato.io)

BR,
Chris

Thanks @cchenry,
I updated firmware successfully and follow document which you refered to me a few day ago but I still can’t create Access Point,

root@fx30:~# fwupdate query

I really don’t know what i have to do now?

Hi comcom,
Could you please try:

  • Check if the card works in client mode
  • Post the contents of your /etc/network/interfaces file
    BR,
    Chris
#10

@cchenry,

I have the same issue, here is the contents of my /etc/network/interfaces file :

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# Wireless interfaces
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wireless_mode managed
        wireless_essid any
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

iface atml0 inet dhcp

# Wired or wireless interfaces
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        hwaddress ether 00:14:3E:26:5C:A1
        address 192.168.13.31
        netmask 255.255.255.0
iface eth1 inet dhcp

# Bluetooth networking
iface bnep0 inet dhcp

about the client mode, does not work too :

root@fx30:~# wifi client start
successfully called start.
root@fx30:~# wifi client scan 
starting scan.
DEBUG: le_wifiClient_GetFirstAccessPoint ERRORroot@fx30:~# 

Regard

#11

Hi Medhi,
Could you please try this:
rm /etc/network/interfaces
reboot

Then, re-post the contents of /etc/network/interfaces and try client mode. If that works, reboot again and then try AP mode. (the device cannot switch between client and AP mode without a reboot).

BR,
Chris

#12

Hi @cchenry,

I deleted the file, but when I rebooted I did not find it ?!

#13

Hi Medhi,
Could you please create a new interfaces file with the following contents:

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# Wireless interfaces
iface wlan0 inet manual
    pre-up /etc/init.d/tiwifi start
    post-down /etc/init.d/tiwifi stop

iface atml0 inet dhcp

# Wired or wireless interfaces
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.168.13.31
        netmask 255.255.255.0
iface eth1 inet dhcp

BR,
Chris

@techr,

“I have the same issue. To use the WiFi, do i need to have the IOT Card?” ----> of sure, because the FX30 device doesn’t have a Wifi interface integrated, that’s why it needs to use the MIRAGE Iot wifi card : http://www.taloncom.com/images/Mirage%20mangOH%20WiFi%20BT%20Module%20User%20Manual.pdf
