I'm pulling out what little hair i have left.
cc3000 wifi shield.
both attached, usb tether and an external power source.
I have tried every example. tried every tutorial and yet to no avail - "Wifi module not present."
i even went and purchased a esp8266 and i'm having the exact same issue. - i have added in the resistors as well. nothing. nada zip zilch.
I don't know if i can update the firmware on the cc3000 as A; no connection and B: no micro/mini usb connection.
Please can someone help as i am ready to just jack this whole thing in. 3 weeks is enough screwing around on what should be a simple connection.
