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!

you have Rev. 2. it doesn't have a Web Panel or configuration AP. (yet)

You can't write an Arduino sketch if you didn't learn programming. Not the language, but the concepts of programming - algorithms and data types.

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

everybody is new to new Uno WiFi. use WiFiNINA library

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.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
