Using the “Easy” setup instructions and the USB/CLI method, I configured my new Photon. Details to follow, but the result after particle setup wifi was Done! Your device should now restart. That didn’t seem to happen, but when I pressed reset, the Photon started blinking green. That’s all it would do. I waited several minutes, then pressed setup to make the led blink blue. While the Device Manager shows the Photon as COM42, when I try particle identify, the response is serial timed out. Putty also fails to connect to COM42.
Here is the TL;DR.
My system is 64 bit Windows 7.
All the Photon setup was done using the CLI.
When I first connected the Photon, it showed up in the Device Manager as a Teensy. I changed the driver to the Photon per your instructions, and the Photon showed up as expected.
I installed node.js and the CLI as instructed. I ran particle setup. Result was obtained magical secure claim code followed by Woops. Something went wrong connecting to your wifi network.
Scratched my head a little, read the forums some more, and tried particle serial wifi. Found my network, entered my password (a long string of hex digits) and got the results described at the start of this post.
So what now?? I can’t seem to find any info on this particular problem described in the forum. It’s likely I just missed it and I apologize if that’s the case. Thanks for any help.
