Thanks for the picture, however, now I know I have issues… As simple as you portray, mine is “different”.
Enter w RETURN get SSID:
Enter OCEAN2 RETURN get "SSID: OCEAN2"
Now I am stuck… never get to Security, or Password:
Terminal is alive, Spark not blinking, just waiting for me???
It’s available for Win, Mac and Linux. I just tried it on Windows 7 and it worked without changing any settings. Just make sure you have your Core in Listening Mode first, then open Cool Term… and if it doesn’t complain that it couldn’t find any ports, you probably will get it to connect to your Core by pressing the Connect button. If you have multiple serial ports, make sure to select the right one in Options first. The line terminations seem to be correct in Cool Term.
To clarify, when you type i your ID should pop up without you pressing ENTER. Also if you then type wwithout pressing enter, SSID: should come up. Type in SSID and then press your first ENTER. Security doesn’t always come up for me depending on the network or something else… it could be the ENTER thing. If it does, type one number and press ENTER. Then type your password and press ENTER. You cannot backspace or it won’t work! so type slowly and accurately.
EDIT: aha… good I see you got it! Must have been the line termination. Putty works for me as well.
Thank you again. I have solved my initial issue. Now I can use Putty to properly get ALL the needed inputs into the SPARK. I have had some success using the iPHONE to connect the cores; this success completed with NO wireless password. Since adding a wireless PW, No success. Stopping for tonight.
Terminal emulators: Yes, ARDUINO is one that did not work properly. Next I tried a terminal inside MS Visual Studio; also did not work. PuTTY solved the immediate issue.
Im trying to write my own windows form to interface my spark, and i wanted to have the end user be able to set the SSID and Password using the serial port… i dont want to use putty because i want my own windows program
Basically im having the same issue as above… i cant figure out the line ending to go to the next bit… ie setting the security type. any ideas as to what the core is waiting for? and where to find it (im compiling local and want a way to call it from my code)
