I recently bought a Spark Core, but I have not been able to connect to it in any way. It is a chip antenna core. The power source for the core is definitely strong enough, and my router is pretty powerful. I am using a 2.4GHz b/g/n network on channel 8 with WPA2-PSK [AES] encryption. I have tried using the android app multiple times. The core continues to blink blue and, after a while, the app says “no cores found.”
I have tried connecting with my computer, but that raises another problem. At the step where I type “npm install -g particle-cli” in the command line, I get multiple errors. I have tried using both the regular command line and the node.js command line installed earlier in the tutorial. Both failed at “node-pre-gyp install --fallback-to-build” and mentioned problems with the serial package.
I don’t necessarily need to use one specific method, so if I could get at least one of them working that would be great. Thanks!
