I just got my Argon and 3 x Xenons and am having some issues. Let me lay out my setup:
- Ubiquity APs with shared SSID names across 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands.
- SSID Names have no special characters (only letters and numbers)
- WAN Password is only letters and numbers.
- Boards deployed in pairs on large prototyping bread boards with plugged in power supply.
- Android Pixel phone
Starting with the Argon, it was a rough ride setting it up out of the box. My problems were solved when I flashed it with the hybrid-0.8.0-rc.25-argon.bin.
I next started configuring the Xenons 1 by 1. First one worked like a charm. Second one hung up after giving it the mesh password. It turned out it joined ok but did not assign the name to the Xenon. I fixed this via the device manager on the Particle site. 3rd one worked just fine.
I had all four lit up in a stable mesh network. I decided to do a power off/on test. After I did so everybody came back up and 1 xenon did not join the mesh network to completion. It was stuck flashing in rapid light blue (Connecting to Cloud). I began to suspect it was a troubled chip but after some playing around, it seemed like the last chip connecting to the mesh would get hung up. After turning some Xenons on and off, I eventually got all of them to connect.
So if I have Xenons 1, 2 and 3. #3 is stuck rapid light blue flashing. I would cycle its power and the same result. I would power down #2 and recycle #3. #3 would then connect up just fine. Power on #2 and it would stop at rapid flashing light blue. Recycled power to #2 a few more times and it eventually got connected.
Getting ready to write some code to play with the mesh now that I have a workable way to get things all connected. Wanted to advise of my experience and see if there were any suggestions.
