OK, so I am trying out the new Spark Photon. It’s too bad I can’t get it connected to the wifi. I went through these steps to connect over usb:
When I got to the point for doing
particle setup this is basically what happened:
C:\Users\admin>particle setup _ _ _ _ _ __ __ _ _ __| |_(_) ___| | ___ (_) ___ | '_ \ / _` | '__| __| |/ __| |/ _ \ | |/ _ \ | |_) | (_| | | | |_| | (__| | __/_| | (_) | | .__/ \__,_|_| \__|_|\___|_|\___(_)_|\___/ |_| https://particle.io/ > Setup is easy!

PROTIP: Hold the MODE/SETUP button on your device until it blinks blue! ! PROTIP: Please make sure you are connected to the internet. > I have detected a Photon connected via USB. ? Would you like to continue with this one? Yes ! The Photon supports secure Wi-Fi setup. We'll try that first. ! PROTIP: Wireless setup of Photons works like a wizard! !

Potentially unhandled rejection  Unable to find mac address in response (WARNING: non-Error used) > No nearby Photons detected. Try the `particle.js help` command for more information. ? Would you like to wait and monitor for Photons entering setup mode? No > Ok, bye! Don't forget `particle.js help` if you're stuck! <3
So then I tried doing
particle serial wifi in the command prompt. This is what happended when I did that:
C:\Users\admin>particle serial wifi ? Should I scan for nearby Wi-Fi networks? Yes ? Select the Wi-Fi network with which you wish to connect your device: xxxxxxx ? Should I try to auto-detect the wireless security type? No ? Security Type: WPA2 ? Wi-Fi Password: xxxxxxxxxxx Attempting to configure Wi-Fi on COM7 I said: w timed out on SSID: Something went wrong Serial prompt timed out - Please try restarting your device
Yep, I tried restarting my device and ran into the same problem. So then, I tried using real term (it is a serial terminal thing) and here is what happened then:
SSID: xxxxxxxxxxxx Security 0=unsecured, 1=WEP, 2=WPA, 3=WPA2: 3 Password: xxxxxxxxxxx Thanks! Wait while I save those credentials...
annnnnddddd guess what? Nothing happened after that. lets just say this. I NEED HELP!
