  • Tool/software: Linux

    Hello all,

    I am interfacing Wl1271 with imx6quad processor and ODIN-W160 chip for wifi.
    I have compiled my driver with Linux Kernel version-3.10.17
    When i load the drivers and make interface up once in my board. the firmware is loading.
    I am getting Wlan0 interface also, but unable to communicate with Wlan0.
    The firmware files for Wireless LAN is wl1273-ODIN-W160.bin and it is renamed as wl127x-fw-5-sr.bin and installed at "/lib/firmware/ti-connectivity/".
