I am trying to get a WiFi signal from one Arduino Nano to another. I just need to know when a switch is tripped. 1 bit.
I grabbed the RF24 Libs off of the gitHub repo, installed then, wired it up, double checked the wires well over 10 times, and still get nothing but 4294967295 in response.
Even when the other receiver is off, it says that its getting 4294967295 as a response from it. I am using the wiring diagram from http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/Nrf24L01-2.4GHz-HowTo .
I have tried this with a Nano, a Uno and a Leo. I still get the same thing. I have tried the "getting started" and "PingPair". I have tried the LED remote but that of course didn't work either. Is there some edit that needs to be done to code to make it work? All the copyrights are 2011, so I am guessing the library is fairly old. Below is the output of the serial console, I have removed return carriages and some a few lines for space.
Has anyone gotten this to work?
