Dropped a packet

by acuplush on Sun Feb 03, 2019 7:06 am

Hello, sometimes the esp sends me via serial "dropped a packet" and this creates problems for my Arduino code. Is it possible to delete the written one?
What does that warning mean?

Thank you

What does that warning mean?

This is due to packet loss (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_loss). It could be caused due to a variety of things on your wireless network. For a simple test, make sure your ESP is close to the router, and only the ESP and your computer are connected to the wireless network. If it's happening sometimes, this could be caused during times of high network congestion/activity.

I'm not sure what you mean by this.
