Title: Setting up Arduino Uno WiFi
Post by: tcole6 on Dec 06, 2018, 08:58 pm
I have just received my Arduino Uno WiFi and want to start by setting up the WiFi connection to my router.

I have powered up the Arduino, waited several minutes, however it never shows up on my WiFi network list, so i cannot connect to it to configure it (using http://192.168.240.1). Is the WiFi part of this board defective?

Thanks!

Thanks! I am new to Arduino. Can I setup this configuration directly through the program?

Thanks for the assistance. I was able to finally get it connected to WiFi and calling some web services.

I've got a lot to learn about these... All my demo programs have an arduino_secrets.h include, but my sketches won't compile with it in there...I have to take it out to work. Tried searching LibraryManager, unless I am searching for the wrong thing I can't find it.

In the secrets TAB you simply insert you SSID and password.
IIRC they can also be used in an alternate fashion such as setting up an AP to use them as logon credentials.

The secrets tab allows you to share your sketch with others but without divulging your wireless credentials.
Not all examples should have that as some simply dont use them.

If you need to modify the sketch to take out the secrets you should delete the secrets tab and then modify the call in your main sketch.

Change "SECRET_SSID" to "SSID"
Change "SECRET_PASS" to "PASS"

Doing it that way will also slightly reduce memory size too.
