I can do 'particle serial wifi' but get red LED

First of all I’m on an At&T modem and don’t know the security type. They didn’t tell me. I type in ‘particle serial wifi’ and I’ve been getting 3 results. Sometimes the red LED. Sometimes the blinking green LED and sometimes the blinking blue LED but never the slow pulsing cyan LED. Here is the particle CLI printout:

@rfsweitzer, you can use particle setup which will attempt to auto detect the wifi network’s security type.

Let me know if it works!
