ESP8266 ESP-12E Wifi Shield

Hello guys! I'm relatively new to arduino and I bought a Wifi Shield to my project, but I can't get it to work. I can't find any official documentation online, only some guys who tried to make it work by chaning the pin layout, etc.

The shield is this one:

I've tried everything I saw on the internet about this and still can get it to work. I can't even update the firmware, I bought a USB Serial to TTL and tried to update the firmware, and it doesn't even recognize the board. I tried to connect to it via Putty, but without luck.

Does anyone have this board and can explain to me how to get it working? Thanks!

That's not a useful description of the problem.

Why do you want to do that?

Yes

I've already provided a lot of information in previous threads on this forum. This one should give you the info you need:

You can find more threads via this google search (I try to use the "elecshop" keyword when I refer to the shield).

Thanks for the repy! Well, I can't even send code to the board, and I think that's why I can't get it to work. I thought that updating the firmware could help, so I tried, but without luck. I had found that thread, but even with the Blynk library it's not uploading the code to the board.

I only need to connect the shield to the arduino, connect the arduino to the PC, open the Blynk > Boards_WiFi > ESP8266_Shield. I tried to compile that and it poped up an error:

error: 'Serial1' was not declared in this scope

So I changed Serial1 to Serial and it compiled good, but I can't send it to the board! It gives some errors:

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding

So I googled it and there were peope saying to disconnect the RX pin, so I remembered a tutorial that said to invert the connections with pin 0 and pin 1, like this:

And it worked! I could upload the code to the board and when I open the serial it shows:

[533] Connecting to MARTINO WIFI
AT
[1543] ESP is not responding
AT+CIPCLOSE=1
AT+CIPCLOSE=1
AT+CIPSTART=1,"TCP","blynk-cloud.com",80

My objective is to create a very simple webserver, I don't know if this Blynk app is what i need. And btw, my switches are:

1 - ON
2 - ON
3 - OFF
4 - OFF

What do I do now? And thank you so much!
