CLI - Can't connect to unsecured network


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to connect my P1 to an unsecured Wi-Fi network, and having some issues with the CLI. When I try to have the CLI auto detect the security type, it correctly identifies unsecured but then gives me the error: Error configuring Wi-Fi: Serial timed out

If I try to manually enter the security type, I still get an error but it reads: Error in particle-cli: opts.security.indexOf is not a function.

Has anyone seen this error before? Any ideas on how to get my P1 connected? I’m using CLI version 1.34.0, and system firmware 0.7.0.

Thanks!

While this may be worth filing a GitHub issue for (at github.com/particle-iot/cloud/issues) you should be able to work around this by putting the device in Listening Mode, connect to the device via a serial terminal program, send the letter w and then enter the credentials manually.

Thanks @ScruffR. I’ll file a GitHub issue.

I was also able to get around it by downgrading the system firmware to 0.6.3.
