Wifi won't connect on certain boards

Postby petersen1 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 3:55 pm

I have an Adafruit Feather ESP32 and three DFRobot Firebeetle ESP32. While all the wifi examples I try work flawlessly on the Adafruit ESP32, none of them work for any of the Firebeetles. So there must be a systematic difference, I just can't figure out what the problem is. Wifi scanning for example works flawlessly.

I flashed the wifi example:

The DFRobot log shows the following:

Code: Select all

I (756) wifi station: connect to ap SSID:1 password:123456
Are the SSID and password for the access point really 1 and 123456? Or did you forget to modify the code and set the SSID and password to the correct values?

If you are using the same binary on both boards it would suggest a hardware issue. Dfrobot uses a clone of wroom32 but adafruit uses official wroom32 and the boards have different power supply components.

The ssid and password are not the issue.

I am using the same binary for all boards. I noticed just now that the DFRobots work when I go really close to the WiFi station. Like laying the board right on top of it. Then it connects. Move 20cm away and it does not connect anymore. Weird. It is the same with all three DFRobot boards I have.
