I have just “tried” connecting my two photon’s from my workplace. That is: I work in a VERY remote area, with only 3G mobile internet available. I have two mobile phones, so I just set one in “hotspot” mode, but the little photon’s refused to connect via the android app on my Galaxy S4, after factory resetting from my home wifi, they were just flashing blue. And I tried again (many times)
So, I fired up my trusty laptop, opened up PUTTY.EXE. Entered serial mode, 9600, 8, none, 1, xon/xoff, com10.
i = gave me the device id
w = asked for my SSID, so I put it in “NOKIA LUMINA 920”, option 3 for WPA2, and the password when asked.
The little buggers still wouldn’t connect!
After a lot more rebooting and swearing, i renamed my phone hotspot to “NOKIA920” and the little tackers can now be found. So, if you cannot connect, maybe try removing any spaces within your SSID.
Now, time to play with some code!
