Detecting valid WiFi Connection

Postby charleslinquist » Mon Jan 17, 2022 11:34 pm

I followed the web server example (STation Mode) given by ... duino-ide/

My goal is to turn the on-board LED ON when a WiFi connection is established, and turn it back OFF
when the connection drops or disappears.

I have no trouble turning on the LED when the WiFi connects, but it will not shut off when the connection
is no longer valid.

My code:

in the MAIN loop,

// Connect to Wi-Fi network with SSID and password
Serial.print("Connecting to ");
WiFi.begin(ssid, password);
while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {
// Print local IP address and start web server

LEDinternal = ON; <------------------------------------------- I added this command

Serial.println("WiFi connected.");

Then, in the main loop, I added the following:

if (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) {
LEDinternal = OFF;

But it doesn't work. Please tell me how I might fix this.
