Looks like Chrome is being overly cautious. Try right clicking on it and choose SAVE LINK AS… and then click SAVE.
When Chrome says it “can’t be downloaded securely,” hit the little up arrow next to the word “Discard” and click KEEP. That should download it.
What a pain. Alternatively I’ve attached it here.
The adapter just routes the pins to Teensy pinout. There is no special sauce.
There’s definitely particle specific code in the WiFi source. I would just start with the V2 source and build up from there for your other chip.
Sorry, the Kickstarter edition used a clock chip that wasn’t as nice as the follow-up. I didn’t know any better at the time.
It sounds to me like the data is corrupted. When you replaced the SD, did you also download a fresh copy of the data, or did you copy the data from your old card?
Here are the SD files for Kickstarter Edition:
Sorry, I’m not seeing the “11” response in your screenshot. Can you try sending the commands from the Particle Console and see what response you get?
The “reboot” command.
Oh, interesting. Yes, that’s correct. I get 100 for both. My EERO Pro 6 is about 10 feet from my Game Frame. Maybe experiment with moving the Game Frame around the room and see how the values change. Or perhaps try another router, or using your phone as a hotspot.
Here is firmware to try. New commands:
antenna internal // selects the CHIP antenna
antenna external // selects the u.FL antenna
wifi_signal // Gets the signal strength as a percentage (0.0 – 100.0)
wifi_quality // Gets the signal quality as a percentage (0.0 – 100.0)
After changing your antenna, you must reboot your photon. The setting is “sticky” so it will remember your last setting. I’m curious if this helps!
Interesting. I have my cardboard back removed, so hopefully that helps. Please let me know how it goes.
Ah, you’re talking about the commands, not just general connectivity? I can’t send http commands to my Game Frame after a day or so, because the web server library has never been very stable. But you should be able to send UDP commands anytime, and it should be able to receive events from IFTTT or another use of the Particle API. Do those fall offline for you too?
That’s crazy if it fixes it for you. Let me know if it doesn’t and I can get you firmware that enables the external antenna you can buy for Photon.
You mean you replaced the Teensy with a homemade Photon Wi-Fi Adapter? How did that go? What problem were you having, and did it fix it?
Possibly, but I’d like to move this conversation to email so if you could give me your address (or something I can search for), I can hopefully find your messages and respond.
If you’re spelling my name “jeremey,” that may be why I didn’t get your emails. What is your email address?
I’m not sure what’s going on, unfortunately. If you hold down the NEXT and MENU buttons, and then power ON the unit, does the color test run okay? If so, then it is likely related to the SD but since you already replaced that I’m not sure what else we can try.
