This has been the most frustrating consumer electronics product I have ever worked with. I have two photon chips that I have been working with for almost a year now and I have yet to actually get them connected to the internet in my home. Here is a list of the things that I have tried:
-Using the Android interface. It sees the device but always encounters an error when trying to connect.
-Using the “particle setup” command in the command line. The photon is always unable to find local networks “Your Photon encountered an error while trying to scan for nearby Wi-Fi networks. Retrying…” I use the manual setup and get another infinitely repeating message when I enter my network information. “Obtaining device information…” I let this go on for about a half an hour and it doesn’t change. My network is 2.4 Ghz.
-Using the “particle setup wifi” has the exact same problems.
-I checked my router settings and I do not have any closed ports.
Is there anything I haven’t tried yet? I’ve been combing these forums and stackexchange for the past several months trying to figure this out.
