WICED CODE 1006 wiced_join_ap_specfic

Getting the following logs. Takes about 40 seconds to join a Wifi Network on a P1. Is there something that blocks this to cause this?

Serial connection closed. Attempting to reconnect…

Here is my code:

#include <math.h>;
#include <vector>;
#include "OneButton.h"
#include "Particle.h"
#include "SPI_tft.h"
#include "application.h"
#include "graphics.h"
#include "photon-thermistor.h"
#include "pid.h"

#define TFT_DC P1S4
#define TFT_CS P1S5

SYSTEM_THREAD(ENABLED);
SYSTEM_MODE(SEMI_AUTOMATIC);

SerialLogHandler logHandler(Serial, LOG_LEVEL_TRACE);
unsigned long time1;
unsigned long time2;
bool timeChecked = true;
SPI_tft tft = SPI_tft(TFT_CS, TFT_DC, 0);

void setup() {
  tft.begin();
  tft.setRotation(2);
  tft.clear(BLACK);
  tft.setTextColor(WHITE, BLACK);
  time1 = millis();
  Particle.connect();
}

void loop() {
  if (Particle.connected() && timeChecked) {
    time2 = millis();
    Serial.println(time2 - time1);
    timeChecked = false;
  }
}

Which Device OS are you using?

  • ERROR_WWD_AUTHENTICATION_FAILED (1006)
    You will get this error if authentication failed trying to connect to the AP

Have you got an antenna attached and could you try with it switched to use the external antenna.

IMHO - only using Particle.connect() with SEMI_AUTOMATIC is not a good idea. Better to check that there are credentials stored then WiFi.connect() wait with timeout, test for WiFi.ready or local IP address not zeros (assuming DHCP) then call Particle.connect() once when WiFi connected. This better handles the failures that can occur.
