Trouble getting initial connection over app/usb but led is blinking blue

Hey Guys,

I’m having trouble making the initial wifi connection with my core. I tried the app and it timed out with ‘no cores found’ - LED was blinking blue (within 15 feet of router). Also tried Coolterm and the Arduino serial monitor, but the core is not showing up as a valid USB connection, though all the while it’s blinking blue.

I’m currently running Yosemite. Any ideas are welcome.


@evan, sounds like the packets sent via Smart Config is not picked up by the Spark Core.

Try another usb cable? It should show up as usbmodemxxx in Mac

Hey Kenneth,
Thanks for the input, i’ll give it a go.
