Last night my ISP was having problems and I lost my network connection. When it returned, all my computers reconnected, except for my two Photons which had been online at the time. Now they’re both doing a pattern of alternating fast and slow green flashing.
Working on the first one, I put it into Listening Mode and ran the Patricle app. I clicked on “+” and it found the Photon. I selected my wi-fi network and it ran through all the steps (configuring credentials, connecting, etc.) ending with “Congrats! You’ve successfully set up your Photon!” I exited the app and then rebooted the Photon.
But now it’s right back to bllinking green. And if I re-run the Particle app, it shows the Photon as Offline. I tried connecting to a different wi-fi network with the same results. Unlike other threads I’ve seen here, this problem isn’t related to a firmware update. Any ideas?
Not five minutes after posting that, after flashing green for 12 hours both Photons suddenly connected to the net. It can’t be anything I did because I only tinkered with the first one. I didn’t do anything to the other one. Perhaps I’ve discovered a new way of resolving connectivity issues - just write about them in the forum.
