BeagleBone is a group of open source board designs. They use a AM335x 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A8 or AM5728 Cortex-A16 CPUs.
Here’s a quick HowTo to help quickly setup your beaglebone for the wireless models with eMMC. This enables your BeagleBone to connect to your wireless network, disable unnecessary services and reduces 2.4GHz interfere for more efficient operation.
/boot. If you don’t know what it means, skip this step.
/boot/uEnv.txt (may require root access)
Uncomment the very last line so the eMMC get flashed upon boot, i.e. remove
# so the last line looks like:
Put microSD card it and let the eMMC be flashed. It is doing to flash the blue LEDs while it’s happening and will become silent once done, after several minutes.
Unplug power, remove the microSD card and reconnect power.
BeagleBone-xxxwifi, password is
sudo connmanctl > scan wifi > services > agent on > connect wifi_foo_bar_managed_psk (choose your actual network) (type passphrase) > quit ifconfig | grep -A 1 wlan0 (make sure you are connected via wlan0, note the IP address) exit
BeagleBone-xxxnetwork, disconnect your laptop from it and connect back to your normal wifi, then confirm the BBBW/BBGW is correctly on your lan:
ssh debian@<new ip> exit
ssh debian@<new ip> sudo systemctl stop bb-wl18xx-wlan0 sudo systemctl disable bb-wl18xx-wlan0 sudo shutdown -r now
sudo systemctl stop bonescript-autorun sudo systemctl disable bonescript-autorun sudo systemctl stop apache2 sudo systemctl disable apache2
sudo systemctl stop bb-wl18xx-bluetooth sudo systemctl disable bb-wl18xx-bluetooth sudo systemctl stop bluetooth sudo systemctl disable bluetooth

There are multiple BeagleBone versions so it is important to decide the type of board desired. Most have internal flash, which makes these desirable as an SDCard is not required.
