Really? It stayed in program mode so I was thinking it failed. Ok I'll try it. Thanks!
I uploaded blink just to test and its not loading. Seems to end without error, but the sketch is not running... I loaded standard, then changed the delays to 250. Just to be sure. The blue light dimly flashes. Highly unlikely....but I wonder if the ESP is bad?. Arduino IDE is 1.8.10 Sorry, one last thing, the devices is Adafruit Huzzah breakout. I buy those instead of the feather because I don;t need the USB as the interface.
No, Sketch not loading. I added serial.begin, and a simple message. And that is not showing on the serial monitor. The Arduino IDE used to show progress loading the Sketch in segments. Its as if the ESPtool.py is not bypassing the IDE progress I used to see and does the new sequence. When I read about ESPtool it looks like its for the Arduino board with ESP WiFi. I dont have that. I have the Adafruit board. How do I get rid of the ESPtool, the python utility. I think that might be the issue.
Its working. I changed the FTDI USB to TTL Serial Converter Adapter Module. The old one is apparently bad....I think.The new adapter loaded the sketch and the WiFi connected and received an IP. Pointed the browser and my page came up. Unbelievable.
