For the last few hours I have been trying to get my Argon to connect to my iPhone hotspot. I have read many posts on possible solutions and believe I have tried most, if not all of them.
I even tried a new Argon right out of the box. While claiming the Argon via the app v 3.3.0 my iPhone hotspot is not listed so I must use my home WiFi to complete the claiming process. I have read @rickkas7 post that says the 's on the iPhone name could be a problem so I removed it. I have connected the Argon via USB and performed particle serial wifi as explained by @ScruffR .
Still no matter what I do, the only wifi it connects to is my home wifi. I have done a factory reset, unclaimed and reclaimed the device to no avail. Has anyone ever actually confirmed that they are connected to their iPhone hotspot?
Hopefully I just missed the post that solves it for me and someone points me to it. Thanks
@rickkas7 Thanks for the reply.
Enable maximum compatibility-did that
Understood, I am setting them via a USB, issuing particle serial wifi and entering the SSID and Password
Scan for networks, tried both and sometimes it found it, sometimes it did not When it did find it, I chose the correct SSID
Selected WPA2 and even unsecured, neither seems to work
When using WPA2, I did choose AES+TKIP as noted by @ScruffR
Not sure what you mean by “make sure the hotspot is activated by having the Hotspot configuration open”? I was manually turning it on via the slider.
I should also mention that when I turn off the hotspot, the argon stays connected. Presumably to my home wifi connection which was used to claim the argon.
@rickkas7 Thank you I will give that a try and report back
I should also note however, I took the argon for a ride in my vehicle where the only wifi present was the hotspot. Both devices disconnected by the end of the driveway. Is there not anyway to only provision with the hotspot credentials to avoid the possibility of the “strongest signal” issue and instead only give it one choice?
