What "[ap6210] No wifi type selected, please check your config." means?

I've got recent Bananian (as of today morning). Please help!
Do you have set bananapro in bananian-config ?

You need load the driver: sudo modprobe ap6210

Thanks guys!

I didn't set hardware in bananian-hardware and didn't copy the script.bin. After doing both it works!

For enable/disable of Wifi, I normally add/comment an entry "ap6210" in /etc/modules.conf. Guess it performs similar function as modprobe.
