What has changed since it last worked? Router? Router config? Or it stopped connecting suddenly?

Can you put here a log from your WiFi AP?


RE: ESP8266 WIFI connection - laulau - 30-12-2019

I've changed my router but it was the same problem on the previous one.
Sometime wifi is connected an sometime it fails.
I have an other Pro2+ (v13) wich is working well.

Sometimes some chips don't talk to each other, I don't know why, but that's right. Then you can change the device,
but if it is from the same manufacturer, it doesn't work anymore...  Sad

I have been using MikroTik products at home in recent years and although it is no miracle, they are cheap and everything
works for me - even the ESP8266. I have several of them (4 pcs) placed under the house and I roam between them without
any problems:

(I use the SOCIFI service for my visits http://www.socifi.com/ with captive portal (hostspot) on one MikroTik switch
and I have a "RADIUS" server with MAC addresses on the same MikroTik switch, so I don't have to enter my password.)

Maybe: try any MikroTik AP device to use...

Did you check the password twice?

Maybe your ESP chip is faulty. Since they are not expensive I would try to change it (if you have the right equipment for such an operation)

For the moment the wifi connection is ok for 4 hours (after a new restart) so the esp8266 is not dead and password is ok.
Maybe a bad contact or a power supply problem Huh . I would like to find where it comes from before putting it in its box!

Edit: Wifi connection lost again(3 hours later)  Angry


RE: ESP8266 WIFI connection - Werk_AG - 01-01-2020

Have you tried to configure your router to always give the same IP address to the MAC address of your receiver?


RE: ESP8266 WIFI connection - laulau - 02-01-2020

Yes i have a fixe IP assigned by the router, but despite this the connection is lost randomly.
