I made a simple sketch that creates a soft AP, webserver and handles a simple HTML page with a couple of forms. After data is submitted into forms server esp8266 forwards acquired data through rs232 to regular Arduino Uno.
It's pointless to postcode because I've tried many variations and ended up with the same results.
Whenever I flash the esp8266 module everything works flawlessly. When I upload the same sketch into NodeMCU FM Whatsapp AP goes very glitchy, e.g. it drops the connection, won't allow me to connect, and whenever I manage to finally connect it sends cropped data to the browser. I choose the correct board type, however, I tried different boards and settings but nothing helps. I tried to power up it from separate lab PSU = same problems.
Probably there's something that needs to be done that I'm missing? Or it's simply a faulty chip?
Thanks in advance!
In case the code really works on one board, it should work on the other, too. To be entirely sure, you may want to use the code sample for AP with WEB server shipped with Arduino (or platform, whatever you use)
Thanks for the information, but I have already tried this once. And it hasn't given satisfactory solution.
