Wio Link setup issues

Post by seeedstudio201410 » Tue Apr 05, 2016 11:05 pm

I'm trying to set up my wio link, using my Nexus 6p (Android M still).

1. when I'm already connected to a wifi, the app "unfortunately stops" when trying to connect.

2. no matter what I try, which network or which kind of password, I always end up with "Error. Wio Link can not connect to the router. Maybe AP password is wrong or AP connect timeout Please reset Wio Link to config mode and try again."

Those of you who managed to config them, what did you use?

Hi

I have been having the same problem, I have tried two access points and 3 different mobile phone and still no success.

Just trying to find information on how to update the board via usb, if possible. As I had a similar problem with the spark photon with the update sorted.

I presume it's possible to connect to it's network, then program it somehow using something else than the app. I wonder where this information is.

Just got mine on after about 30mins of fiddling with it. I had to first get it onto a Wifi network without any WPA2 (open Wifi network.) Let it connect, and verify I could connect from the app. Once done, I reset it again, then was able to add it to my normal Wifi network on WPA2 by holding down the config button and reconfiguring again.

Hi all,

The app send wifi password with udp protocol.

If very difficult to configure with app, I suggest use Wio Link Command Line Toolset. It use usb to config.

https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/wio-cli

It support Mac/Linux/Windows.

Hey Seeed there are a lot of people having the same issue on android 6 ... Can we please have some clarity on either when a fix will be available or a proper work around (not CLI)!

OK so no help from Seeed on this issue. Has anyone had any joy with android 6+?
Latest app update has not fixed the problem.
It is annoying the hell out of me... Is there a workaround without going down the CLI route?

Hi seeedstudio201410,

Can you tell me when "App then says it is retrieving IP from Wio”, your phone’ wifi is back connect to your AP?

By default the phone will automatically connect to the AP before Wio.

And the wio blue LED is lights on or blink?
