  • I have recently bought two of this shield. However, I am really struggling in hooking it up. I will really really appreciate it if someone can give me some guidance.

    I have read the hookup guide a lot of times and research on other sources on the internet. I must have missed something or done something really silly. For my situation, I cant stack the shield on my UNO because I have accidentally soldered shorter female jumpers on all of the pin.

    I have connected the Tx, Rx, 5v and GND (from ESP8266 PROG) to Rx, Tx, 5v and GND of my UNO board with wires. After that I used the Putty Terminal in serial mode to communicate with the board. I had received some gilberish message followed by "READY!" and then "Wifi Disconnected". I tried to type in "AT" into the terminal but after pressing "enter", the "AT" message is still on the terminal screen as if my "enter" button was not working. I have also tried to power the shield witha FTDI basic breakout board and used putty terminal again but it was still the same problem.

    Below are the pictures of how I have connected and powered the shield and the message I got from the putty terminal. I would really appreciate it if someone can give me a hand on this! :) Cheers!
