This is really an extension to @Elco’s issue documented here:
Am running 0.8.0.rc4 in SEMI_AUTOMATIC_MODE
All is fine if one has WiFi up, with or without Particle (ie intranet only), as I have documented here Particle.connect() disconnects WiFi - can this be stopped?
Turning off the Wireless Access Point causes the grief which is the issue of this ticket:
- It does not want to reconnect to the Access Point when it is turned back on (bit problem in itself)
- more importantly in my use case, every time I get log lines:
ERROR: wiced_join_ap_specific(), result: 1024
it blocks loop() and and I miss packets of data form the serial port (Serial1)
No doubt I am not the only one to suffer with this! Any suggestions?
