Hello, I have used both the Nvidia Jetson Nano from the developer kit (4GB of RAM) with Jetson Linux version 32.6.1 and this jetson nano carrier with the newest Jetson Linux 32.7.1, while trying to set up the board as a AP hotspot.
Initially I did it using the Intel M2 wifi module in the dev kit carrier version, no issues whatsoever, but since the avermedia model does not have this port available I thought about using a USB dongle to set up the AP. I have been unsuccessfull in doing so, see the error message attached below (point 8).
I followed the same exact process with the Intel module and the USB dongles (tp link dongle and this other dongle), which is attached in the following images:
Check if the nano does detect the usb dongle drivers, in both it did without having to manually download any drivers:
I tested by manually configuring the AP using hostapd and it didn’t work as well, by the way I tried to replicate the hostapd script configuration in a raspberry Pi model 3 without wifi and the board generated the hotspot out of the box.
My guess is that this issue has to do with the kernel of the Linux tegra OS or something about the wifi configuration? Any ideas regarding how can I make it work/bypass it?
Thank you for your time and I’m awaiting your response.
Hello @alanz, first of all thank you for the response.
In the thread you posted below I tried to reproduce the steps listed as a solution by the user @karunakar.r, but what surprised me was the fact that in this part of the thread Jetsonnano with wifi AP - #8 by karunakar.r , said user mentioned that he was going to use the Intel AC8265 nic module for jetson nano, and the part of the post marked as a solution mentioned that he was able to create the AP through this board, not a USB. As I said in the first message of this post, I could already achieve this as well, and using the integrated GUI tool for networks, but in the new board I’m working with I don’t have an M2 slot available.
Furthermore, just in case I tried the commands mentioned in the post and the output I got was the following: dmesg_errors.log (2.2 KB) output.log (3.5 KB)
The dmesg log was captured after the instructions yes.
Have you ever sucessed to setup the AP on X86 host? Not in an X86, haven’t tried it there, but I successfully set up the AP on a raspbery pi model 3 with the same USB dongle.
