I followed the steps to enable built in wifi modem as mentioned in this thread:
I have a Red board with WP7502 module. Although the instructions are meant for WP76xx, I followed the same for building WP750x module. Till date, WP750x is running R15firmware with a slightly older poky toolchain support. The steps were same and finally I could build and flash the module.
In last step with command “ifup wlan1” is failing. A kernel module for MT is missing. Here is the command log:
root@swi-mdm9x15:~# ifup wlan1
Setup MT7697 UART
Initialized Linux WiFi modules
insmod: can’t insert ‘/legato/systems/current/modules/2-mt7697wifi_core.ko’: No such file or directory
The modules directory is empty.
My question is, this module is firmware dependent or can be build from source?
