I am looking at adding a WiFi interface to an embedded linux platform which only has a provision for a USB device. I have purchased a WGM110 starter kit and also own a Raspberry Pi ( and one other mini PC that has a Linux OS install) and looking at doing if it would be possible using these devices first.
My problem is I can't seem to figure out where to start with what I want to do. Basically what I would like is:
- disable the WiFi on my Raspberry Pi
- plug in the WGM110 kit USB to my RPi and turn it into a WiFi network interface
just to prove that the WGM110 is suitable for what I want to do. I can see that from the datasheet of the WGM110 it should show up as a Virtual COM port but cannot seem to figure out how this would be turned into a WiFi network interface? I have checked the /dev/ttyACM* path is added, and dmesg logs the WGM110 kit I have plugged in as of USB CDC ACM type.
