Scan info for index: 4 SSID: HTCPortable Secuity type: 3 Channel: 6 Signal Strength: 94 Count of support bit rates: 8 Supported Rate: 1000000 bps etc SSID MAC: A826D93A9CEF Beacon Period: 100 dtimPeriod: 2 atimWindow: 0

About To Connect Connection Created, ConID = 1 Wait 30-40 seconds to establish the connection WiFi not connected Shutting down Resting for 30 seconds

The WF32 seems to wait 3 seconds then goes to shut down... Any help would be appreciated. Regards Anthony

Hello Anthony,

In the config.h file, make sure you have set the SSID to your hotspot and the pass-phrase too. You need to comment the #define USE_WPA2_KEY and comment out the #define USE_WPA2_PASSPHRASE. This will cause the key to be calculated from the pass-phrase you supplied. In the case where you do not need to authenticate the security, comment out all #define authentications.
