Install and update necessary packages
Add Radxa APT, see Radxa APT.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install -y rockchip-overlay $ sudo apt-get install -y linux-4.4-rockpin10-latest
There are two methods for network connection. One is Ethernet and the other is WIFI.
You can use a network cable (one end connected to the external network port or route) to connect your ROCK Pi N10 to the network. The ROCK Pi N10 will automatically configure the network for your surfing on the Internet.
To test the Ethernet, we need to follow the steps:
- Switch to super user mode by command
$ sudo su
- Check whether the Ethernet is normal by command, ifconfig, which would show us a network card, eth0, and the Ethernet IP address. Also, use tool, ping, to connect to a normal domain.
$ ifconfig $ ping www.baidu.com
- If failed to connect to a normal domain. , try
$ sudo dhclient eth0
When there is not a network cable for your ROCK Pi N10 the WIFI connection is another good choice. ROCK Pi N10 supports 2.4G/5G WIFI wireless network.
To test the WIFI performance, we need to follow the steps:
- Switch to super user mode
$ sudo su
- Open the WIFI
$ nmcli r wifi on
- Scan WIFI
$ nmcli dev wifi
- Connect to WIFI network
$ nmcli dev wifi connect "wifi_name" password "wifi_password"
- Test WIFI perpormance by tool iperf.
Check Bluetooth service
$ systemctl status bluetooth
Run Bluetooth service if the Bluetooth service is inactive.
$ systemctl start bluetooth
Check Bluetooth device
