Hey, I’m using the spark core in a school project, however the spark core app does not want to allow the core to connect, because the wifi does not have a password associated with it. The spark core app looks like it should connect, however when I try it the core continues blinking blue. Is this a software issue, is it just due to some blocks on the wifi, is there anything else that i could do to connect it?
I’m not sure if there is a way in the app, but there is an (relatively - for Windows) easy way via the USB serial connection.
When your Core is in Listening Mode it opens a serial port to which you can connect and send
w to which the Core will respond with asking you for SSID, protection scheme (open in your case) and the passphrase (empty for you).
You can use CLI
You could write a one-time sketch that uses
WiFi.setCredentials() to infuse the data of your school WiFi
