1) First, you need to purchase an AP6275P PCIe network card as shown in the figure below


2) Then insert the AP6275P PCIe network card into the M.2 interface of the development board and fix it


3) Then open the configuration of the AP6275P PCIe network card in the linux system, the steps are as follows:
a. First run orangepi-config, normal users remember to add sudo permission

orangepi@orangepi:~$ sudo orangepi-config

b. Then select System


c. Then select Hardware


d. Then use the arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate to wifi-ap6275p, and then use the space to select

e. Then select <Save> to save


f. Then select <Back>


g. Then select <Reboot> to restart the system to make the configuration take effect


The above settings will eventually add the configuration of overlays=wifi-ap6275p to /boot/orangepiEnv.txt. After setting, you can check it first. If this configuration does not exist, then there is a problem with the settings.

If you find it troublesome to use orangepi-config, you can also open /boot/orangepiEnv.txt, and then add the configuration of overlays=wifi-ap6275p.

rangepi@orangepi:~$ cat /boot/orangepiEnv.txt | grep “ap6275p”

4) If everything is normal after restarting the system, use the following command to see the device nodes of WIFI and Bluetooth
a. The command to view the WIFI device node is as follows:

orangepi@orangepi:~$ ip addr show wlan0

qdisc fq_codel state DORMANT group default qlen 1000

link/ether 70:f7:54:b8:b3:17 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

b. The command to view the Bluetooth device node is as follows:

orangepi@orangepi:~$ hciconfig -a
