Here is what I have. COnnected from PIN 2,3 on the arduino side of the board to TX,RX on the ESP side does not help. The board is working, it broad cast its own wifi ssid I can get on that and I can set it up to use my network. So its acting as a bridge of some sort. But I can't really get it to talk to the arduino.
