#79038 Help!

I have a ESP-WROOM-02 connected to an ATmega1280.
I have level conversion in place.
I have managed to get the boot response from the module.
Other than by scope, I don't an have a simple method to
monitor the input and output. So I cannot (at this point) let
you know what the boot info includes.

When I send a command string to the module, it does not

The string being sent is "AT+CWMODE=3", followed by '\x0D', '\x0A'.

The module is clocked at 26Mhz and I have measured the TX and RX
baud rate at 76.8k.

I have confirmed that the RX data does arrive at the RX pin on the module.

A couple of questions:
Does anyone know whether or not parity is being used?
Does this module (ESP-WROOM-02) come with preloaded with firmware?

Newbie with this part so any suggestions would be helpful.

#79045 I don't have any experience with the ESP-WROOM-02 myself, but as far as I know it shouldn't differ much from other ESP modules, so it will boot at 74880 Baud (this is not a typo, it actually boots at 74880 Baud) and after that, when the AT firmware is loaded, it switches over to 115200 Baud.

As with all serial communication, you can read along all passed data by connecting the TX and RX lines via diodes to a RX-line of a COM-port on your PC. :idea:
Above is what we used in the old DB9-RS232 days, but it can similarly be used with TTL serial.

But, I actually wonder why you (and a lot of people like you) are assuming a lot, without getting to know your newly acquired ESP. :roll:

You should first play with it by simply connecting it (also using a level convertor of course) to a serial port (via USB) on your PC and using a terminal program like PuTTY.
That way you can try out all the available AT commands (when there's actually AT firmware installed; you don't know since you haven't tested it) and see how it behaves without using a lot of assumptions (please read my signature about assuming things). :idea:
