my Huzzah Feather 8266 is not showing up...

Post by siquepuede »

Hello,
I had set up my Huzzah Feather 8266 a couple of days ago using the super clear instructions provided by Adafruit. it was super easy to set up. I got the LED to toggle on and off, and even got to actuate the servo I connected to the Huzzah Feather using the slider. Then after looking at Blynk iIOT options for my students on the web (I regret doing that :)) I was not able to get the Huzzah Feather to show up on Adafruit IOT. I deleted the Blynk library from my computer but no change. So, I tried on a different computer and added the board on the Adafruit IO page again and still no board shows up under "my devices". Not sure what's going on!

thanks for your help.
Andrew

Thanks for the great feedback on Adafruit IO! Blynk's Arduino code will overwrite our Adafruit IO WipperSnapper firmware on your Feather ESP8266.

To get the Feather ESP8266 back online, you will need to re-upload WipperSnapper firmware via https://adafruit.github.io/WipperSnappe ... er-esp8266

Brubell, thanks for the quick reply and helpful suggestion.
I'm pretty sure I did the re-install of WipperSnapper firmware a few times, but I'll try again when I get home. I feel like maybe I need to "re-set" the Feather back to factory condition. I'll check on Adafruit guides.

best,

Andrew

Hello again,
I tried re-uploading the firmware as per the instructions and still see no board on my Adafruit IO. Very puzzled!
When turning the console on, it appears that the firmware is being flashed on to the Feather 8266 just fine, but then no board appears under my devices. Any others having issues with this? My troubles with this started when I included the Blynk library, but I've reloaded the WipperSnapper firmware several times onto the board and also pressed reset according to the directions. WipperSnapper is such a nifty way to do IOT I don't want to give up on this just yet.
thanks for any suggestions you may have.

Andrew

Someone else is having the same issue as you and I've gathered enough data to make a bug report.

https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Wi ... issues/404

I'll try to reproduce this issue with the ESP8266 and will follow up both here and on the issue linked above.
