Playin around with ESP8266

So I tried tying my esp8266 to the 2$ nano i just received in the mail. Was getting nothing for a while. Needed an external power supply to work. Too bad.

useful link

Set serial monitor to both NL & CR line returns and 9600 baud to get it to respond to AT with OK.

firmware version



sets it into some mode? Necessary for the next step to work

CW stands for?

List Access Points

AT+CWLAP lists local access points

Join access point

AT+CWJAP=”local access point”,” password”

I’ve noticed that the esp is available from my computer

AT+CIFSR tells me the IP addresses

I belive one is its ip as a client and one as an access point.

I do not have a great success rate with commands. The serial is getting garbled

Gonna try loading up that custom firmware

Looks like there is a python script to load the firmware

Or Maybe I’m done for today.
