XO Hardware


We should check if XO built in wireless adapter (Marvell Libertas 88W8388 controller and 88W8015 radio) works as specified (

  • Wireless adapter identified by the system and working properly
  • Status leds work as in speciffications (on = registered, blinking = activity) - (atodorov - PASS)
  • 802.11b/g/s connectivity
  • 802.11s functionality when CPU is powered down (BLOCKED by bug #465284 - can't suspend)

Basic Functionality


Testing XO built in wireless adapter to work with standard security protocols/encryption methods.

  • Ability to work with standard protocols and encryption methods:
    • WEP Open/Shared with ASCII/HEX key (atodorov - PR - PASS)
    • WPA/WPA2 with TKIP/AES encryption - need a radius server here...
    • WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK with TKIP/AES encryption

Advanced Functionality


Ability of the XO built in wireless adapter to operate in more advanced modes like AP-bridge or rfmon.

  • Mode Managed / Ad-Hoc / Master (AP)
  • Ability to change output power
  • RAW monitoring mode (rfmon) support

USB network adapters


  • Belkin USB 10/100 Ethernet Adapter, model # F5D5050 - works out of the box with NM on Snap#3 and PR (atodorov)
  • ZoWii USB2.0 LAN Adapter - works out of the box with NM on PR (sharkcz)
  • Motorola SURFboard Cable Modem SB5100 - works like a charm with NM and network scripts (rvokal)
  • Ralink RT2501USB wifi dongle - works like a charm on Snap#3 with NM (rvokal)
  • Linksys USB100TX - pegasus driver, works out of the box with NM on Snap#3 (aligas)
  • Linksys USB200M - asix driver, works out of the box with NM on Snap#3 (aligas)
  • D-Link DWL-G122 B1 - rt2500usb driver, works out of the box with NM on Snap#3 (aligas)


Network Manager


  • WPA & WPA2 works with NM from Shapshot 3 (rvokal)
  • WEP works with NM (qark, in progress), (atodorov - snap#3 and PR open system/shared key - PASS )

Networking configuration using Network Manager

  • VPN connection
    • vpnc (Cisco compatible) (qark, in progress), (atodorov - snap#3 and PR - PASS )
    • OpenVPN (qark, in progress)

System Config Network


Networking configuration using system-config-network.

Known issues

  • 469835 - NM doesn't identify wireless devices on the XO - usability issue since the XO has 2 wireless devices, mesh and regular. Waiting on upstream work from OLPC.
  • _djr2 reported on IRC that if you set txpower to 20 via iwconfig it drops back to 10ish after a while. Could be related to some internal hardware power management.
  • on some XOs ifwconfig eth0 reports a bit rate of 1/2 Mb/s. Not sure if bug or not. Sugar also reports the same.
