Connections in Access Point mode.

Post by ChipBurner »

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me how to determine whether it is connected to an access point? Access point on ESP8266 or ESP32.
WIFI.STATUS gives 0, 6, 255 and never 3. I tried fw 1.49 and 1.51.3 respectively.

My test program. I used fastboot and autorun options.

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

WIFI.SLEEP
PAUSE 1000
print STR$(WIFI.MODE)+"-"+STR$(WIFI.STATUS)
WIFI.APMODE "AP_TEST",""
i=0
DO WHILE 1
  PAUSE 1000
  print ".";
  IF 0=i mod 10 print STR$(WIFI.MODE)+"-"+STR$(WIFI.STATUS)
  i=i+1
LOOP
END
After rebooting, I connected to the access point and opened the editor page. After a few seconds, I disconnected from the AP and connected to the router. Then I connected to the AP again and refreshed the editor page in the browser. I ended the program with the stop button.

Oops, my mistake. ESP32 with 1.51.3 cannot start the wifi module at all. There is no AP or connection in STA mode. I used the same options: fastboot and autorun. Same program. Recently I was testing the ability of BLE to receive advertising packets without establishing a connection and therefore forgot that I was testing the AP with a different firmware (the latest at that time was 1.52.3).
Serial:

OK
No SD cards found. Reverts to LittleFS
