#80080 I have had a fairly stable wifi running now for weeks, but just about every week it dies, and I have to go reset the ESP 8266 module to get it back. And then, sometimes, it takes awhile for it to regain the serial communication with the Mega that runs my machine. Using a Chinese ESP NodeMcu 12E module.

I am thinking to start using the Mega to reset the ESP and the ESP to reset the Mega automatically if a "condition" is not met.

I have looked at sending to a function to restart wifi first, if the code is intact and not messed up from some glitch. if (wifi not working) { do this }

Is there any damage to the modules if it gets reset every week or so automatically? Image
