  • Just received one of these and I can’t get it to connect to save my life. I tried using the USB port first (just blinking blue led), and then I tried the iPhone app (seems like everyone has been happy with that). The iPhone app always fails in the Claim Device step, then says that the Network credentials are wrong (which is bunk - I entered them into my Macbook and they work fine). I am at a loss as to what else to try. I’m going to try a couple more times, then this thing is back to SParFun for a refund. Not very happy with this at all…

    I’ve tried both my Apple Airport network, and just for kicks tried another wireless AP - no joy whatsoever…

    Should have posted this hours ago - after the iPhone app “fails”, simply reset the board and I got the “breathing” cyan light and can ping it from my network. The initial setup instructions could use a complete overhaul - nowhere does it indicate that a reset of the board is required.

  • I just bought one of these, and so far it’s been nothing but frustrating. I’ve tried in in Arduino IDE 1.5.3 (most current) on Mac (no drivers needed) and Windows 7 32-bit (with all of the driver gyrations from BeagleBoy’s post.

    I get the same error in both environments:

         Programmer Type : USBtiny
         Description     : USBtiny simple USB programmer, http://www.ladyada.net/make/usbtinyisp/

    avrdude: programmer operation not supported

    avrdude: Using SCK period of 10 usec CMD: [ac 53 00 00] [00 00 00 00] CMD: [ac 53 00 00] [00 00 00 00] avrdude: initialization failed, rc=-1 Double check connections and try again, or use -F to override this check.

    I’ve checked the connections - first time I was using jumper wires, but I soldered directly into the 6 pin connector and it still fails. I don’t think this programmer works

No public wish lists :(
