WIFI embedded board


I am working on a project to build an embedded board with WIFI connectivity. My present status:
- I have a embedded development board TS7200 .
- It has USB and Ethernet Port.
- I am able to get port Linux on it and run program to communicate between devices and a computer using socket programming and Ethernet.

I need help in deciding how to get WIFI connectivity to the board. I guess it would mostly be using WIFI dongle ?

Any suggestion for a WIFI dongle ?

How should I get it working ?

Where should I look for proper reading material ?

I am am planning to do some basic program practice using WIFI on my laptop. How can I do that ?

Thank you.

You're probably using debian;so, look in lib/modules/<kernel name>/drivers/ and look in net and usb for wireless.
You can then search online to match the driver to the device.
It will work by adding the firmware and license- if required- into the firmware directory.

Developer mailing lists for embedded are a good start.
