Re: ESP8266 completely unreliable

To Espressif_Faye We don't have 'test code' as such but there is ESP application code that replaces the AT set. We would need to provide a full description of this. Also this interfaces with a PIC microcontroller. With respect to the slow TCP handling, on of our team has found the following: 'Readin...

Re: ESP8266 completely unreliable

As the comms from the Smartphone and its app. work perfectly with other WiFi AP devices (like a TP-LINK nano and a Netgear) the problem doesn't seem to be in the WiFi link. Other members of our development team have had the same issues. It seems to relate to the TCP stack code. The problem is much w...

Re: New FEATURES gathering

I know it has been mentioned before (many times) but could I ask again for an alternative to the (very outdated) AT command set. If the ESP is to be interfaced with any reasonable microcontroller, it needs a simple, fast, binary scheme, preferably via the SPI as this can be faster with a MCU than a ...

Re: ESP8266 completely unreliable

Hi How can I use Wireshark (which I have) to capture packets when all I have is a Smartphone and the ESP-01? The only comms I have is via the ESP USART lines. I am monitoring the traffic to and from the ESP USART with a PC program. My Wireshark works on an Ethernet connection. Can I set up Wireshark...

ESP8266 completely unreliable

We have been trying to use ESP-01 modules for a project over many months. We have used all SDKs from 0.9.5 to 1.4. We have our own code for interfacing to a microcontroller (PIC). Communication is TCP with a Smartphone (Android) app. 1. When we try to connect the WiFi using DHCP, the phone sometimes...

Re: TCP connections hopelessly unreliable.

We too are having a problem with the TCP. This is with incoming messages - from a Smartphone app. As this is a control application we need the message to be sent via the UART as soon as possible. We have a reliable connection to the TCP channel but the messages appear on the UART with a very variabl...

Re: New FEATURES gathering

A 'built-in' Bonjour / Zeroconf' capability. This is essential if the ESP is ever to be used as a standalone service provider. This seems a very obvious requirement for any IoT device but a glaring omission on the ESP?

Re: new features possible ?

I am a newbie to this group. This is my first posting. I really wanted to start a new topic but didn't know how. We have an application where we want to use the ESP8266 as a local service provider. This is actually an interface between a Smartphone app and a system running on a CAN bus. In common wi...
