#87634 Hi, I am new to ESP Basic but have a background in Micromites. I have flashed my module and connected in AP mode. On the Settings page I entered my Sation ID and password but where do I find the IP address to connect to. I opened a terminal but all I saw was gibberish.

#88480 #include <ESP8266WiFi.h> // Include the Wi-Fi library

const char* ssid = "SSID"; // The SSID (name) of the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to
const char* password = "PASSWORD"; // The password of the Wi-Fi network

void setup() {
Serial.begin(115200); // Start the Serial communication to send messages to the computer

WiFi.begin(ssid, password); // Connect to the network
Serial.print("Connecting to ");
Serial.print(ssid); Serial.println(" ...");

int i = 0;
while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) { // Wait for the Wi-Fi to connect
Serial.print(++i); Serial.print(' ');

Serial.println("Connection established!");
Serial.print("IP address:\t");
Serial.println(WiFi.localIP()); // Send the IP address of the ESP8266 to the computer

void loop() { }

The code to connect to a wireless access point is relatively straightforward: enter the SSID and the password of the network you want to connect to, and call the WiFi.begin function. Then wait for the connection to complete, et voilà, your ESP8266 is now connected to your Local Area Network.
