Setup board - WiFi101 Firmware Certificate updater -"Programmer not responding"

We are new to the MKR1000 and have tried on both Mac and PC.

We have successfully uploaded the libraries for a suggested starter project “Love you pillow” as follows

// WiFi101 - Version: Latest
#include <WiFi101.h>

// CapacitiveSensor - Version: Latest
#include <CapacitiveSensor.h>

// ArduinoJson - Version: Latest
#include <ArduinoJson.h>
#include <ArduinoJson.hpp>

// TelegramBot - Version: Latest
#include <TelegramBot.h>
#include <TelegramKeyboard.h>



void setup() {


void loop() {


We then used the Arduino desktop application to try to upload the Firmware Updater example from the WiFi101 library and add to the domains (> examples > WiFi101 > FirmwareUpdater).

When clicking the “Upload certificates” button, we get the error “Programmer not responding”. Please see the attached screen image.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

(PS: the Blink example worked OK, so I take this as indication that the MKR board is working)

From what you have written it looks like you have multiple "different" issues.

Lets deal with one at a time as your problem looks quite confusing.

  1. Have you updated the firmware successfully ? (not the certificate or domain)

  2. Consider double checking the source material and reading more from the "telegram" site. The MKR uses SSL and the info in the project might not reflect that things have changed "" as opposed to the one published in the project works. NOTICE the extra S on http !
    That extra S should make it work as tested here.

Have you updated the SAMD core via the Arduino IDE's board manager to the latest release?

Thank you both for responding.

We updated SAMD and are slowly back working through the project and setting up TelegramBot.

I cannot connect to wi-fi network. The monitor just shows endless dots as if trying.

I will search the forum for answers on this.

The MKR1000 has B,G,N, bands so should talk to your router quite easily.

If not your router should have a fallback 2G band that might be better suited to these types of devices.
Only way to be sure of your WiFi settings is to have access to your router.

Just a heads up these are not the same as your cell phones bands for cellular communications.
For that you would be using the MKRGSM1400 board.
