Hi,

(please excuse my bad english :oops: )
my (old) wifi attachment seems to be broken, it does not connect to my wifi anymore (blinking blue), although I've already tried all 3 methods described in the manual to configure it. I live in Europe, so ordering just a new attachment is quite expensive because of the shipping fees.
So, I thought about making my own ;) I've seen that there new approaches with the ESP8266 and the result seems to be the new cloud wifi attachment. What about the eagle files and the firmware? Would be great to get them!

Thanks!

Christian

Hi again,

SOLVED! :D
Just found this topic:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4601
and gave it a try and my wifi attachment connects again.

Thanks,
Christian

crowed too soon :oops:

my wifi attachement now works "sometimes". If I connect it, I get the green slow flashing every second or third try. But it looses the connection after a few minutes and then loops with the blue flashing.

So I would like to ask again for the eagle files of the cloud wifi attachement to build it on my own.

Thanks,
Christian

I only have Altium files.
Does that work for you?

sorry, I have no Altium here. Well, actually I just need a part list and a print of the PCB, so a PDF would be great.

Thanks!

Hi again,
@Roberto: thanks again, but I've found another solution, that is way simplier for me and gave me a working wifi module after 15min and with only 5€ costs

Just buy a nodemcu esp8266, install the arduino software and flash

https://github.com/v01d-cypher/ReefAngel_ESP8266

after changing the network configuration in the file.

Then wire the nodemcu with the RA as described here:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=6827

(I also connected 5V from RA to VIN of the NodeMCU)

Worked great for me. It's a bit slower than my original wifi extension was, so I had to increase the timeouts for connecting and reading in the android app, but it runs stable at least since yesterday evening.

Thanks!
Christian
