LattePanda on a drone

Hi all,

For starters, I have the CR200 z8350 4gb/64gb LP on which I have installed Ubuntu 16.04.

I am thinking of using the LP as a drone computer so I would like to be able to connect to it wirelessly without having to connect it through ethernet. I was able to make a hotspot on the LP to make this happen and I can see the network hotspot appearing, but when I try to connect another computer (i.e., a Macbook) to this hotspot, the other computer gets kicked out after some 2 seconds of a seemingly "successful" connection. I've also tried it on a Windows computer and the Windows computer cannot connect at all.

I've looked at the output of

Code: Select all

iw list and I could see AP as a Supported interface mode,

Code: Select all

Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * AP * P2P-client * P2P-GO but I'm wondering if it's even possible to do this on the LP right now or would I need to buy/add an external networking adapter to the LP?

I've also noticed that the output of

Code: Select all

lspci -nn does not contain any "Network Controller":

Code: Select all

00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2280] (rev 36) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:22b0] (rev 36) 00:03.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:22b8] (rev 36) 00:0b.0 Signal processing controller [1180]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:22dc] (rev 36) 00:11.0 SD Host controller [0805]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2295] (rev 36) 00:14.0 USB controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:22b5] (rev 36) 00:1a.0 Encryption controller [1080]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:2298] (rev 36) 00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:229c] (rev 36) So I'm assuming that I would either need to get an external wireless adapter or I'm missing a driver?

Edit: Added output from iw list and lspci

I apologize if this seems like a stupid question, I'm still a beginner.

Thank you,
