configesp pass does not work

#1 Post by mackowiakp » 20 Nov 2018, 19:32

What is the proper password for ESP_Easy_mega-20181120_minimal_ESP8266_1024_OTA.bin firmware? Standard "configesp" does not work for AP named Minimal 1M OTA_0.

Hi. I have the same problem.
I flashed nodeMcu (HW-628) with releases ...20181117/20/21 and ... "Password error" (written configesp).
When I flashed with R120 - its all ok

Until I have tested it you can program them using the ESP Easy Flasher.

Hmm. I must do something wrong.
I flash them with ESP Easy Flasher - there is ok. (I receive info after about 80sec that is OK)
I make restart ESP, fond ESP_Easy_0 (secured) and there have problem with password.

The same way but with Release 120 and password configesp is working.
Basically for me is 120 ok but, you know, new release may be better :)

Sometimes the unit doesn't behave. You can press reset button and then after it's done you can use the serial monitor to see if the unit accepted the values you sent. If not you can redo the programming.

It's not an exact science.... :P

I've had this a couple of times with esp12 and esp01 units.Its a likely a power supply issue.

Ive noticed this before switching to easyesp. I would have sporadical disconnects or no connection after power up - but only with some versions of some firmware. adding capacitors solved the issues, sometimes.
Also thesonoff PSU is cheap. it has no filtering. HF from the mains can easily travel to the esp chip.

- disconnect mains power
- connect uart
- power the esp by uart
- use the commands
WifiSSID
WifiKey
to configure your wifi

seems like the ap mode uses more power than the client mode. Thats how i setup my easyesps always.

However No problems with wemos boards yet (same firmware)
