Low Power RF & Wireless Connectivity
CC3000 Won't Connect to WiFi network
I've tried using FTC mode using my iphone. The format I used was TTT5ssid02password. Using 5 for the SSID length and 2 for WPA security. LED8 blinks for a little while and then stops. I get nothing after that.
I've tried modifying the ConnectUsingSSID method in the 'webserver' application to this:
wlan_connect(2, ssidName, strlen(ssidName), NULL, "password", 8);
Where ssidName is the SSID for my network. When I run the code in debug, I am stuck in the 'connection loop' with current currentCC3000State() returning a value of 3.
I've tried turning all security off on my router but nothing seems to work.
Thanks in advance for the help.
So were you able to get the Basic WiFi Application compiled? If so, you would be best served to test your connection with that application. Next, lets try to make sure you can make a connection without security first, to eliminate any issues with security settings. So go into your router and remove any security from your wireless settings, then reboot your router. I would like to start by asking what type of router you are using and what are the rest of the wireless settings of the router. If you are using the TP-Link router then all of the mode settings, except for n-only should be fine. However, some other routers may cause issues with the cc3000 connecting if any mixed mode settings are enabled which has n-mode included. So please check for this, and try to change your mixed mode setting to b/g modes only. Also please just do a quick check to make sure that there is no MAC filtering going on, you are broadcasting the SSID, and that the wirelsss radio is definitely enabled. I only mention this becasue sometimes it is easy to look over seemingly obvious solutions. So once all of this is checked, and you have the Basic WiFi application running, please type "01" to send the CC3000 into FTC and try your connection again. If you are still having issues, it may help if you could post some screenshots of your router's wireless settings. There may be some other setting that is causing the issue.

Thanks for the reply, I was actually able to figure out my problem when I actually read through all of the wikis. I needed to download the patch programmer and update the device. Once I did that I was able to connect without a problem. Thanks!
