Good day,

I have written some code to use an ESP8266 as a custom wifi attachment for the RA.

I can't find the code for the existing official wifi attachment, I assume it's not open?

There are a few other questions I have that could help improve the functionality of this custom code if this kind of thing isn't frowned upon :-)

Regards,
Nevar

The original WiFi attachment doesn't require any code. It is a pure hardware solution. The cloud WiFi attachment is open source and uses ATSAM25 chip. Use the web wizard to see the code.
I would love to see what you can come up with and may even be able to help too :)

Great, as I mentioned, I've already written code that I'm currently using with the ESP8266, but I would like to go through the cloud wifi code to optimise my communication with the RA. As I didn't think of looking at the cloud wifi code, my code may be terrible, but it works lol. Eg. I was trying to add security for /wifi and make sure the forum user and portalkey is used, but decided to just check the IP. You can view the current code on my github account v01d-cypher/ReefAngel_ESP8266

The cloud wifi attachment rev 2 uses ESP8266.
The ATSAMW25 wasn't as stable as I had imagined.
