1  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Re: WiFi.RSSI(); Not updating? on: April 26, 2013, 07:44:49 pm
I had the same problem, and while PaulS seems to think that updating the library is a piece of cake, I for one do not find it trivial. It calls 50 other files, and you're soon in a sticky and unwieldy situation. I mean, if it were so simple (like a hello world), wouldn't less people rely on libraries to get things done?

So sorry you had to endure his jabbings. Anyways, I found a workaround: add a "WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);" after (or before) assigning the rssi value in your loop.

void loop() {
 long rssi = WiFi.RSSI();
  Serial.print("signal strength (RSSI):");
  Serial.println(rssi);

 WiFi.begin(ssid, pass);
 delay(1);
}


And for others with this problem, I am using a Leonardo board, with the WIFI shield model R3, a macbook running Arduino 1.0.4, and my blood type is A+.

Cheers.

I did that, as it says to on the github page, and still nothing. Here is my error message. The github folder was copied and pasted into ~/Library/Arduino, and the sketchbook location in the preferences set to that:
