I'm concerned that all this DIP Switch switching is going to kill the tiny little switch!
Hi,I have one of these modules and I can load the sketchs without problems in both the ESP and the Mega changing the DIP's. The problem comes because my ESP only uses it as an AP so that the Mega receives data. The AP is reflected in the WiFi search but when you connect to the AP it disappears and you have to turn off the power so that it goes back out because no reset succeeds.Thinking that it was the module that was defective I bought a second module and it does exactly the same. The fact is that the same sketch I put in my Nodemcu and works perfectly.
powering of the esp8266 has not enough amps
sorry. the powering on Mega+WiFi is ok. it will be a problem with the esp8266 sketch. better start a new thread and show the code
Hello, I would like to ask you a help, because I'm not undestanding very well...Now I use an Arduino uno board with an ESP8266 board mount on its adataptor, the sketch of my project loaded into the Arduino uno works fine using the "WiFiEsp.h" library and the "SoftwareSerial.h" for the communication between the Arduino and the ESP8266.I haven't load or flash anything into my ESP8266, I had just connect it to the pin of the virtual serial and power supply of course. I would like to move my project to this board, doesn't it works as the same? My sketch just adapted for a Atmega2560 isn't enought to work properly with this board? Do I need to load something into the ESP8266 unit or does it need some setting? This is what I am not undestanding...
@Juraj Modify my sketch to replace SoftwareSerial with Serial3 is not a problem.What I was not sure is if this board is ready to use WiFiEsp library or it needs an ESP8266 filmware upgrade
