I am unable to connect my Photons to a hidden SSID that has no security. I have tried with the iOS app and I have also tried with the particle serial wifi command. The serial command indicates that it communicated with the Photon but then reports back that the command timed out and suggests restarting the Photon. Restarting simply generates flashing green and never connects. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Is it possible that current firmware can’t handle connecting to a hidden SSID?
I am deploying several Photons at a public elementary school as part of various science projects. I do not have direct control over the wireless setup and the entire school uses either wired connections or hidden SSID without any passwords for internet access. BTW, the Photons will be solar powered and located outdoors.
