Re: SHC WiFi still looking for OnStep

Be patient. After the splash screen…
Display shows Starting WIFI: ONSTEP…Restart WIFI: Failed
This loop repeats for me at around 10 second intervals.
Then ….after 1-3 minutes or so you get… connecting 192.168.0.1 Looking for OnStep connection O.K.
All is good from there.
Black pill STM32F303CC and ESP32 WR00M-32s as the wSHC. Latest firmware on all.
OnStep great on Bl(ack)(ue) pill.
I am still puzzled as to why the connection takes so long?
Proximity makes no difference. I can have the wSHC 1 meter or 20 meters away from the “Pill / scope”.
Stellarium and SWS from the lappy are instant. Android app takes a couple of seconds to connect.
I have breadboarded 2 examples of wSHC and the behaviour is identical.
The boot state of the “blue pill” makes no difference. Freshly booted or just repeat connection attempts act the same.
I expect the wSHC to connect within a couple of seconds. The variable “minutes” wait time renders it not of much use
Over using the laptop or the simple hand controller.
PUZZLED as to why? You bet I am!
