  • After wiring this board twice, once with simple dangling leads (works perfectly) and then with headers plugged into a breadboard (doesn’t work perfectly) I discovered that the board has to be raised about 4 mm in height above the breadboard. If this isn’t done then the wifly cannot connect to a router, but strangely can still connect to a host in ad-hoc mode. Before coming to this conclusion I investigated different additional ground shields etc. Presumably this is the breadboard acting as a dielectric and affecting the wi-fi, or some other suitably waffly explanation!

    Hope this helps!

No public wish lists :(
