WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Not applicable

It took a while but now l can connect to wiced wifi through /dev/ttyUSB1.

First you need to install ftdi drivers in linux. Search for libftdi1.

apt-get install libftdi1

Then, you need to install the driver:

modprobe ftdi_sio

The "vendor" and "product" option does not work anymore, don't bother to use them. This is where I got stuck. New kernel have a different way of specifying vendor and product.

Instead, use:

echo 0a5c 43fa > /sys/bus/usb-serial/drivers/ftdi_sio/new_id

Now, /dev/ttyUSB1 device should be available. You can connect using minicom:

minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB1 -s

Make sure hardware or software flow control is "off".

My /etc/udev/rules.d/67-wiced-JTAG.rules looks like:

# udev rules file for WICED USB JTAG interface, to allow use by non super-users 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0a5c", ATTR{idProduct}=="43fa", GROUP="emre", MODE="0666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb-serial", DRIVERS=="ftdi_sio"
