1  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Re: Wifi shield - cool term connection settings on: December 10, 2012, 11:30:28 pm
Using the FTDI connection I wanted to try to debug another wifi shield issue.

I am using an Arduino compatible FTDI breakout board ( ) instead of the FTDI cable but the result is the exact same. Similar to what Adam experienced, regardless of speed and the other serial settings, the wifi shield never responds.

BTW looking around in Github I think I found some code that appears to be relevant:

File  : board_init.c  ( )

static void init_printk(void)
#ifndef NO_SERIAL
const usart_options_t usart_options = {
.baudrate = 57600,
.charlength = 8,
.paritytype = USART_NO_PARITY,
.stopbits = USART_1_STOPBIT,
.channelmode = USART_NORMAL_CHMODE
usart_init_rs232(&CONFIG_CONSOLE_PORT, &usart_options, FPBA_HZ);
#endif /* NO_SERIAL */

I think this proves that your settings are correct. But it brings up the question if CONFIG_CONSOLE_PORT was defined when our firmware was built. I suspect that it was not... hence the no response behavior.

I don't know enough about the firmware build environment. Maybe someone more familiar could help us out.
