I use ubuntu 12.04 on a beagleboard-XM. I use wireless dongle on the board for wireless interface
root@ubuntu:/# uname -a Linux ubuntu 3.2.0-23-omap #36-Ubuntu Tue Apr 10 20:24:21 UTC 2012 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
I use wireless dongle on the board for wireless interface. The name of the wireless interface changes time to time, e.g., it is wlan0, after some reboot procedure wlan3 is assigned for the interface,then wlan2, etc. Btw, the USB dongle is always connected to the same USB port.
Is there any way to have a static wireless interface name, e.g. wlan0? Because I assign static IP on
/etc/network/interfaces for the wireless interface, the board cannot get the predefined IP when the wireless interface is named differently.
I would appreciate for the suggestion to fix the name of the wireless interface.
