I'm making a program for an ESP8266 that will, when not connected to a WiFi network, put the ESP8266 into STA/AP mode so the user can connect to it and configure it. So far, the ESP8266 switches modes properly when connected and disconnected. However, when attempting to connect to the ESP8266's soft AP, I can connect to it, but it does not assign an IP address, which makes me think that the DHCP server isn't running. I have the same issue regardless of whether the ESP is in AP or STA/AP mode.
I might try to post an MCVE at some point, but for now I don't have the time to extract the relevant code from the rest of the project.
I'm using the Arduino Framework, compiled via PlatformIO on the ESP-01 @ 160MHz.
Do any of you have suggestions? Thanks in advance!
