    Hello,
    I am trying to get the wireless connection to work between my PC and my Android OS based Quad/Dual UDOO. I have a working USB connection between the two using ADB at both ends, as well as have the Android SDK installed per the instructions.

    Following the UDOO documentation, I run the adbWirless app on the UDOO and it tells me to simply type from my computer the line "adb connect 0.0.0.0". What I get back is the following:
    "unable to connect to 0.0.0.0:5555: cannot connect to 0.0.0.0:5555: The requested address is not valid in its context. (10049)"

    Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Thank You,
    Stan

    Did you try and connect "adb connect <IP of Udoo>" ?
    Replace <IP of Udoo> with the IP of your wireless connection IP like 192.168.1.124 The IP address can be found on the Udoo in wifi settings or on your router.

    I do not have a router in this situation which is why the UDOO might have told me to use 0.0.0.0 as that might be similar to a wired localhost address like 127.0.0.1. If so, I suppose I would need to set up a wireless network on my PC (peer to peer).

    So I did that and went to the UDOO (Android platform), went to the Wi-Fi settings thinking I would see a list of wireless networks in the area (including the one I set up on my PC) that I could connect to but all see is a screen that says "Turning Wi-Fi on..." which goes on forever.

    Now I am wondering if there is something else I am suppose to do to enable wireless capability? Software setting? Jumper maybe?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank You,
    Stan

    On my Android phone I can switch on tethering to use my phone as an wifi access point. Perhaps this is also possible on the Udoo Android?

    Yes, I just found that menu item in the Android platform. There is a menu item labeled "Portable Wi-Fi hotspot". Whenever I press that, it attempts to 'turn on the hotspot' and reports "error".

    Another thing I tried is going to the terminal app and entering ifconfig. I notice that only the 'Lo' and 'eth0' ports were listed. I would expect to see 'wlan0' as well but do not. Should I at least see it listed even if it has not connected to a router?
