Router make and model
Network security (unsecured, WEP, WPA2, etc.)
Environment (home, small office, enterprise, public network, etc.)
Network topology (number of routers and/or range extenders, estimated number of devices connected to network)
Wireless hub attached to router
Internet Service Provider
Any network settings that might diverge from the norm
Tried to access via smartphone, iOS(4S) and Android(MotoG)
Neither could connect.
Move to USB
particle.io is installed

I am an electrical engineer and software dev, so I do know my way around such things.
Any suggestions before I sent this back? I assume I just got a bad one.
