So I have tried a variety of things, but my Nano’s network doesn’t appear to come online until after the first login with a user name and password. I had auto login with gnome and everything worked as I expected, plugging in the nano made it available on the network. I wanted to save on RAM however since I only need to access the board through SSH, and it is on a robot so it is powered off frequently. I tried switching to LXDE to save memory, and started to see this behaviour. Power save for the wireless was set to
power_save off. I also then used
sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target to just avoid the GUI altogether, but the issue persists. I am using the Intel Dual Band Wireless-Ac 8265 w/Bluetooth 8265 module.
How can I get the network setup to start on boot without have having to log in first?
