Please delete if I cannot post this.
I cannot tie into the ESP-01 through Arduino IDE Serial Monitor nor even Putty.
I’ve tried every baud available in Arduino with NL and CR, as well as quite a few in Putty. Using 78800 Baud rate, and depending on which sketch I have loaded, I can sometimes get:
ets Jan 8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(3,6)
load 0x4010f000, len 1384, room 16
and then I get some gibberish, but the AT command does nothing.
I’ve tried 5 different modules, including a Adafruit Huzzah. I’ve tried 3 different power supplies.
Communication is fine uploading sketches and running all sorts of different programs, but if u wanna check my Wiring:
1000uF Cap to VCC and GND, polarity is correctly connected
VCC to 3.3V power rail on my breadboard
GND to Ground rail
CHPD to VCC
RX to FTDI TX
TX to FTDI RX
FTDI is set to 3.3V, but I’m only using common ground to my breadboard.
I think that just about covers everything I can google search…except 1 thing. What it is I do not know… Is there a specific sketch I need to load prior to doing this that is obvious but I am overlooking?
