I purchased two BBB and WCC and I am in the same case than you.
The WCC are not recognised by the BBB...
If you get some result about this, please inform me, I'll do the same If i make some progresses.

Did you happen to see this:
I don't know if it will help but it looked related to your issue.
YES, I have tried everything mentioned, in this pdf, as well as some online tutorials, but all in vain !
Any update on someone getting it working with beagle bone black ?
It's working for me (BBB and Connectivity Cape) !
We were a bit dumb, we hadn't connect the power supply... The BBB can work with the USB provided power, but it's not enough to handle the cape, so you have to connect an external power supply.
It's working for us since we've done this.
I haven't had any success connecting the wireless cape to the Beaglebone black. Has anyone had success? If so, where can I find resources on how to prepare the Beaglebone Black to except the wireless cape? In going down the wireless cape rabbit hole I found several references to uploading SDKs to the SD card the BBB is booting off of and/or downloading/pulling various scripts. The issue I'm having is the card is reading as full of in the case of the SDK image described on TIs site the BBB Debian image is being wiped in the process of loading the SDK. I'm running Debian Jessie 9.1.
