Topic: CREATING A SECURE AP WITH ATWINC 1500 (Read 61773 times) previous topic - next topic


I am trying to create a secure access point with atwinc 1500 and I am stuck. So far I have been able to integrate the open ap arduino code with a bit of ESP8266 code. I am now able to get a secure access point however, I can't log into it. I am attaching my code below for any help I can get. Thanks in advance.

Code: [Select]

#include <SPI.h>
#include <WiFi101.h>

///////please enter your sensitive data in the Secret tab/arduino_secrets.h
/*char ssid[] = "Maggie";        // your network SSID (name)
char pass[] = "Mindya";    // your network password (use for WPA, or use as key for WEP)
int keyIndex = 0;// your network key Index number (needed only for WEP)*/

const char* ssid = "Maggie";
const char* password = "Maggie";

int led =  LED_BUILTIN;
int status = WL_IDLE_STATUS;
String header;

WiFiServer server(80);

void setup() {

  //Initialize serial and wait for port to open:
  while (!Serial) {
    ; // wait for serial port to connect. Needed for native USB port only

  Serial.println("Access Point Web Server");

  pinMode(led, OUTPUT);      // set the LED pin mode

  // check for the presence of the shield:
  if (WiFi.status() == WL_NO_SHIELD) {
    Serial.println("WiFi shield not present");
    // don't continue
    while (true);

  // by default the local IP address of will be
  // you can override it with the following:
  // WiFi.config(IPAddress(10, 0, 0, 1));

  // print the network name (SSID);
  Serial.print("Creating access point named: ");

  // Create open network. Change this line if you want to create an WEP network:
  status = WiFi.beginAP(ssid ); // When I add password here the code immediately fails
  if (status != WL_AP_LISTENING) {
    Serial.println("Creating access point failed");
    // don't continue
    while (true);

  // wait 10 seconds for connection:

  // start the web server on port 80

  // you're connected now, so print out the status

void loop() {
  // compare the previous status to the current status
  if (status != WiFi.status()) {
    // it has changed update the variable
    status = WiFi.status();

    if (status == WL_AP_CONNECTED) {
      byte remoteMac[6];

      // a device has connected to the AP
      Serial.print("Device connected to AP, MAC address: ");
    } else {
      // a device has disconnected from the AP, and we are back in listening mode
      Serial.println("Device disconnected from AP");
  WiFiClient client = server.available();   // listen for incoming clients

  if (client) {                             // if you get a client,
    Serial.println("new client");           // print a message out the serial port
    String currentLine = "";                // make a String to hold incoming data from the client
    while (client.connected()) {            // loop while the client's connected
      if (client.available()) {             // if there's bytes to read from the client,
        char c = client.read();             // read a byte, then
        header +=c;
        // print it out the serial monitor
        if (c == '\n') {                    // if the byte is a newline character

          // if the current line is blank, you got two newline characters in a row.
          // that's the end of the client HTTP request, so send a response:
          if (currentLine.length() == 0) {
            // HTTP headers always start with a response code (e.g. HTTP/1.1 200 OK)
            // and a content-type so the client knows what's coming, then a blank line:

if(header.indexOf("dXNlcjpwYXNz") >= 0) {
client.println("HTTP/1.1 200 OK");
client.println("Connection: close");
client.println("<!DOCTYPE html>\n");
client.println("<h1 style=\"color:blue;\">ESP32 webserver</h1>\n");

// Wrong user or password, so HTTP request fails...

client.println("WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=\"Secure\"");
client.println("Content-Type: text/html");
client.println("<html>Authentication failed</html>");

currentLine += c; // add it to the end of the currentLine
// Clear the header variable

// Close the connection
Serial.println("Client disconnected.");
