I’m failing to setup up a particle photon connected by USB to a mac with OS X Sierra. The wifi I’m using (SSID CalVisitor) has no password.
web setup (Chrome) in Step 2 keeps displaying “Please fill in all the fields” - well, I filled in the CalVisitor. Tried both leaving the password empty (as it should be) or typing in some random string still gets me the same “Please fill in all the fields”.
cli: everything works fine (photon finds CalVisitor, among many other nets) and detects correctly that it has no password. But then it gets stuck with “It doesn’t look like your Photon has made it to the cloud yet.”
One possible issue is that CalVisitor is both on 5G and 2.4G, same SSID. But I assume that if the photon cannot connect to a 5G network, it will simply not display that SSID?
Oh, and the CalVisitor net works just fine. I am now connected through that net!
(I already perused the web and this forum to find possible workarounds. I’ve flashed the firmware. Not of that stuff helps.)
