Hi, I am new to spark and am coming from an Arduino background. I am having trouble finding what I need in the spark documentation and so am wondering if what I want to do is possible.
I would like to be able to get the spark to scan for nearby wifi networks (SSID, security config) and report its findings so that I can display the list on an LCD screen. Once listed, I would like to allow the user to select a network and enter the pass code for it, then get the core to connect to that network.
I have achieved this on an Arduino Mega with a wifi shield using serially transmitted commands to the wifi shield then reading the result into an array, the LCD stuff is not relevant to this question as I have nailed that already.
However, I’m not sure how the core behaves, maybe I cant talk directly to the wifi chip I don’t know. I was hoping there would be some kind of wrapper class for commands to the core that would expose this functionality to us coders as standard. I had hoped that the core would make it easier to play with the wifi chip that the arduino was. If anyone could expand this for me I’d be most grateful.
I have found similar threads on here but nothing that seemed helpful in regards to this.
Thank you, Rick.
