ESP8266 - new WiFi settings



  • Hello,

    I have a problem with flashing a WeMos as a gateway.
    No matter what I insert for the WiFi name, it is always using old values.

    For example I have the following definition in my sketch:

    #define MY_ESP8266_SSID "MySSID"
    #define MY_ESP8266_PASSWORD "MyVerySecretPassword"
    

    But in the debug output it says:

    no your-ssid found, reconnect after 1s
    

    It seems that it is using old values from the flash when I did upload an other testversion.
    Is there an option to reset everything in the flash from the ESP8266 so that it is using the new values?

    Regards
    Stefan


  • Mod

    @gloob Well, assuming you are using library 2.1, it should really use your values: https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/blob/master/core/MyGatewayTransportEthernet.cpp#L113
    Are you sure MY_GATEWAY_ESP8266 is defined ?
    Compare your sketch to an example, e.g.: https://github.com/mysensors/MySensors/blob/master/examples/GatewayESP8266/GatewayESP8266.ino



  • Yes I'm using the new 2.1 version.

    I have tested it with the sample sketch:

     * DESCRIPTION
     * The EthernetGateway sends data received from sensors to the WiFi link.
     * The gateway also accepts input on ethernet interface, which is then sent out to the radio network.
     *
     * VERA CONFIGURATION:
     * Enter "ip-number:port" in the ip-field of the Arduino GW device. This will temporarily override any serial configuration for the Vera plugin.
     * E.g. If you want to use the defualt values in this sketch enter: 192.168.178.66:5003
     *
     * LED purposes:
     * - To use the feature, uncomment any of the MY_DEFAULT_xx_LED_PINs in your sketch, only the LEDs that is defined is used.
     * - RX (green) - blink fast on radio message recieved. In inclusion mode will blink fast only on presentation recieved
     * - TX (yellow) - blink fast on radio message transmitted. In inclusion mode will blink slowly
     * - ERR (red) - fast blink on error during transmission error or recieve crc error
     *

    @gloob Strange. What ESP board package do you have installed in the Arduino 'IDE'?



  • For the ESP version I'm using 2.3

    I wil try it with 2.2

    Edit: Version 2.2 will not compile

    In file included from /Users/Stefan/Documents/Arduino/libraries/MySensors/MySensors.h:344:0,

    Edit 2: The problem also exists with MySensors 2.0

    Edit 3: If I upload a non MySensors Sketch, the Wifi settings are updated:

        WiFiMulti.addAP("SSID", "passpasspass");

  • Mod

    @gloob You should try with WiFi, not WiFiMulti.



  • This was just an example that an other sketch is able to set WiFi settings correctly. It is also working with other sample sketches.

    Only the MySensors Gateway sketch does not set the settings correctly.
    For me it sounds that the problem is based on some internal stuff of mysensors


  • Mod

    @gloob the MySensors library builds on the arduino port for esp. So, if WiFiMulti works for you, WiFi might still fail as it uses different library functions. I asked, to determine if the problem is in the MySensors library or the arduino port.



  • Okay I have now tried the following sketch:

    /*
     *  This sketch sends data via HTTP GET requests to data.sparkfun.com service.
     *
     *  You need to get streamId and privateKey at data.sparkfun.com and paste them

    It is still displaying the WiFi settings from the previous upload:

  • Good morning,

    I have now tested everything on an other PC and still have the same problem.

    I use the following versions for my test now:

    ESP8266: 2.3
    MySensors: 2.0
    WiFi: 1.2.7
    Arduino IDE: 1.6.13
    

    Regards
    Stefan

    @gloob I guess I have to replay it then. Busy today.. I'll get back to you



  • I found some kind of "solution"

    I did now reset the configuration of the ESP8266 with:

     ESP.eraseConfig();
     ESP.reset();
    

    And now it accepts the new WiFi configuration with each upload of a sketch.

    I hope this helps other people that have the same problem.

    @gloob great to hear you got it working!
    Apparently the mysensors library is using the api correctly (as it is working now)



  • @gloob You can also flash first the Wemos with the "eraseEEprom.ino" from the Arduino sketch examples before you upload the gateway sketch πŸ˜‰


  • Mod

    @kalle that probably won't work as it will only erase the mysensors part of the eeprom (simulated in flash) while this issue is about esp caching it's wifi settings internally.
    But, feel free to try πŸ˜†
