I’m sure someone here has had this before.
The first Ardunio I was given for Xmas was a Nano kit from Franzis I-O-T maker kit series.
It comes with 20+ projects and a booklet, which to be honest boosted my knowledge no end and was much fun.
I have progressed onto an Uno but dusted off the nano yesterday.
I plugged the nano into my PC and got the IDE window up, selected the model, flavour and port.
I then selected the serial software sketch to upload so I run a few checks like sdk and so on…
Here is the code:
Its a standard piece that reads and writes to an AT prompt.
Software Serial Examples.
No change necessary.
SoftwareSerial esp8266(11, 12);
// Open serial communications and wait for port to open:
// set the data rate for the SoftwareSerial port
//send first AT Command to see if ESP8266-Module responds
void loop() // run over and over
Now, the only problem I have is that the IDE serial monitor window which used to work now give unreadable characters. I have tried a number of different baud rates - all to no avail.
I’m sure it is something fairly simple as some other example programs DO work and you can get responses.
Is there a better softwareserial code out there I can use to program and run various commands.
Thank you for any help and suggestions.
