Dear Nico,

Thank you for clarify the serial and other things.
I do understand that you always power the ESP8266 from another device on the USB, is that correct?

Myself do have some bad experiance with power an ESP8266 from another device on USB.

Solo programming the unit seems fine until the WIFI radio goes on, and current does go up (a lot at startup).
At this moment my best bet would be the power, so see if you can get another power source, or 2 AA Alkaline bat. to run the ESP8266 as test.

Let us know if you get any better results.
Regards,

Adam

Up to now powered always from USB.
But tomorrow I will try other power sources and let you know the result.
Thank you

I have separated power supply for the 8266, but the result is the same.

So I tried another approach and i connected to the pin 10 and 11 of the arduino pro mini to intercept serial traffic, and I discovered that the 8266 correctly receive and transmit serial commands and response. It looks is the Arduino board that has the issue.
Could it be due to Library errors?

I Included a shot of the traffic of the 8266 intercepted in the first image.

The second image is the serial Printout of the arduino.

I made some more tests.
I use the example for DHT temperature sensor test with the same Arduino ProMini board ad it works fine. As you can see in the screenshot.


So I start to believe that is not a Hardware issue but more of a Library problem in Esp8266EasyIoT :blush:
Maybe because was developed with the old ESP8266-01 and not for the 03 version.

After hours of different tests, the only way to make the device talk with ArduinoProMini ws to reflash ESP8266 to a downgraded firmware 0.9.2.2
This will lock the communication at 9600baud ad then it will work fine.

Hi Nico, do you have the old Firmware?
