Time to display ignorance.

 

Would like to become familiar with the ESP8266 based WiFi module. Have had a look at some sample code featuring AT command set.

 

Looking for an idiots guide on how to interpret and apply the AT commands within a wifi environment.

Similarly looking for fundamentals of WiFi protocols in an easy to understand ( this is what needs to happen and this is how to implement ) refference.

 

As always

There is entire forum dedicated to this chip http://www.esp8266.com/ .

NOTE: I no longer actively read this forum. Please ask your question on www.eevblog.com/forum if you want my answer.

Thanks Alexru,

 

Came across some practical hints on the site; got me going in the right direction.

 

Still perusing the site for more specific content on standards ( 802.11 ) and AT command set practicalities.

Though not WiFi fundamentals the Arduino WiFi library is one implementation; the examples show some common operations.

The new Arduino WiFi shield is a work-in-progress to Atmel ATWINC1500.

Interfacing the ESP8266 to an AVR is appropriate to this forum.  There are many ways to communicate with this device.  I am currently using the PCDA to attempt to load the response without having to wait for the module to give me a response.  A timeout feature processed by a timer ISR that checks to see the latest state of the PCDA and whether or not it has received and "OK" or an "ERROR" allows the loop to terminate the PCDA transfer if either response is received.

 

While I realize that you wish to keep the forum focused, you are not doing the community a service by limiting the discussion so narrowly.
