Community Question

I am having an issue with Wifi. I am able to connect without issue in AP mode. However, that is not really what I want. I would rather connect via client mode for various reasons. That's where I am having some problems. I enter the SSID and the Security key for my network in the config and hit the connect button and it reboots and actually says "I have successfully connected to your network"

I also am getting a green flashing light on the EZ-B as well. While any normal person would jump for joy at this point, sadly I would not be one of those people because it is lying.

It can not be found on my network. It can not be found using the scanner inside of EZ-builder nor can I see the connection in my router from the EZ-B.

Any ideas?

Very frustrating!

You mentioned that you you just got JD, but you are describing an issue that has been fixed for a very long time. Do you know if the JD was purchased directly from EZR recently, or maybe a reseller where it has been in stock for some time.?

The easiest fix would be to order the [sku:51]

More complex is reflashing the firmware, but it requires a special tool and is a little tricky. See https://www.ez-robot.com/EZ-Builder/Open-IoT-Wifi

This JD was purchased from amazon.
I will attempt to do the upgrade.
Thanks Alan.

Is there no warranty on this kind of problem?
I am getting a little disappointed in EZ-Robot.

The 4/2 upgrade is the superior way to go although more expensive than buying the programmer device.

I just realized I have a simple free solution for you though. I just upgraded my 4 EZ-B's, so I have 4 original EZ-B top halves that have been flashed with the latest build and don't have the issue and I have no need for them.

Send me your address (my email is in my profile) and I'll drop one in the mail for you.
