I'm able to communicate with them using a serial converter connecting to the board. It also turns on the wifi module, as I can see it when I scan for ssids. I can't, however, connect to the built in web server. I've not tried to change any parameters using a serial connection (putty) due to a few concerning things I've read in this thread.
What I'm wanting to do is use the module with a uno board for some basic iot stuff (Blynk, etc).
I've tried various libraries, etc, but no luck getting the arduino to see the wifi shield. I've tried the suggestions within the thread, no luck.
I'm thinking I'm missing something obvious. Can anyone point me to a known-working library? I would think if its 8266 based, that would work for me, but not having any luck. Do I possibly have a config issue with the 8266 shield that would keep it from working with the Uno board?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
