So I have started my first lesson of the Firebase Web app , pretty simple so far, followed instructions ok. I loaded the script in my Arduino Ide 1.8.16 made the proper edits for WiFi and password, installed the authentication information and ran the program after putting in the email and password. . Open the serial monitor and I get connecting to WiFi , but that’s about as far as I get. I don’t see the local IP come up or that it is connected. I checked the creds and all is fine, I am within 6′ of my router so its not a distance issue. I made sure that I have pressed the rst button , I downloaded to the board a few times just to make certain that it went properly. I followed the instructions to set up Firebase and selected the free service. I can see my program in Firebase so it must be configured right. I never get to the part that connects to the service but it does show the created date, i have left this running for about an hour and still not connecting.
It’s almost certainly a coding error somewhere. Just to make sure the board is OK and WiFi is working (My router just failed on the 2.4GHz band. The 5GHz was fine) open up a WiFi test sketch and check. If that works, you’ll probably have to go through the sketch line by line. Did you copy/paste or download the code? Pasting always introduces issues with newlines in the wrong places etc.
Ok will look at it again, I actually downloaded it fro the pdf . Will try the WiFi example program as well.
I think there is a misunderstanding.
On which page of the eBook are you having issues?
With Firebase, you don’t need the IP address of your board since it is not hosting your app.
Firebase servers host the app. And you need to access the URL provided by Firebase after deploying the app to get access to it. I don’t know if you are in that part of the ebook yet.
I was a bit confused by the book because it covers different ways to do it with different software (VS and the other) .
I got to the point where it tells me that I should go to the site and see a connection. All I see is that I created ( the date) . As I look at the Serial monitor I see that it is trying to connect, just a bunch of dots.
I will push on , could be I got ahead of myself.
Please tell me on which page in the ebook you are having trouble.
It will be easier for me to figure out if there’s something wrong or to provide different instructions.
