what's the best way to configurate cc3000 for using with an access point.
At first cc3000 with MCU has compiled a standard SSID network name inside but it is normally not compatible with a home network name to connect it directly without any further configuration.
As I read several times there is no ad-hoc mode which could be used for that problem to connect a laptop or smartphone directly with cc3000.
The cc3000 does not come with a SSID network name compiled, this is configured either with the sensor application software, with the first time configuration, or when you create a profile manually. If you have the sensor app loaded on the FRAM board, the easiest way to configure it is to have the sensor app configuration it for you. Just make sure the computer you are running the GUI on is connected to the AP first, then run the the application. It will find the MSP430 on the virtual com port, then send it the commands to associate to the same AP that your computer is connect to. Another way to configure it, via the first time config. If you have the sensor app demo loaded then you just have to press switch 1, which will make the MSP430 disconnect, and put it into the first time config mode. When in first time config mode, you tell the module what SSID you want it to connect to, and the security info of the AP. If you are running the basic Wi-FI app, then you will send the MSP430 into first time config by entering 01 into your terminal program. Lastly if you are running the Basic Wi-Fi app you can also create a profile with the provided commands. Please refer to the following wikis for more information:
