 I have successfully updated the USB drivers and reflashed the hardware of the BCM4343w Iot Starter Kit. I can see that the wiFi hotspot (WICED_AWS) is created but I am unable to connect to the configuration webpage using the given IP address 192.168.0.1

Your suggestions will be appreciated.

Unable to connect to config webpage via SoftAP (WICED_AWS)

1) Make sure your laptop has connected to WICED_AWS before addressing your browser to 192.168.0.1  

 

2) WiFi channel 1 (the channel that WICED_AWS is set to) tends to be very popular. If you have strong competing WiFi traffic on channel 1 this will lead to problems in connecting. If this the case and you are able to move your setup, relocate to a quieter WiFi location (just to get through this initial configuration stage). The default WiFi channel is configrable in the source code, so you have the option of changing to a different channel to suit your location.

 

3) If still not able to connect you may need to consider hard-coding your network and AWS settings into the source code. See the "Bake-in the AWS IoT and WiFi network settings" section in Part 2 of the Intallation Tutorials

I'd also recommend open a serial console (Tera Term) so you can monitor the status messages from the module.

Immediately after you have seen the following, press and hold the User push-button until you see confirmation that the DCT memory has cleared:

 

WWD SDIO interface initialised
WLAN MAC Address : xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
WLAN Firmware    : wl0: Nov 25 2015 12:57:14 version 7.45.45.1 (r602358) FWID 01-1920c040

Please wait, connecting to network...
(To return to SSID console screen, hold USER switch for 5 seconds during RESET to clear DCT configuration)

 

You should then see the following on your console screen:

 

DCT clearing start
DCT clearing end
IPv4 network ready IP: 192.168.0.1
Setting IPv6 link-local address
IPv6 network ready IP: FE80:0000:0000:0000:B238:29FF:FE3D:3A7D
*******************************************************
Config SSID : WICED_AWS
Password    : 12345678
IP Address  : 192.168.0.1
*******************************************************

 

At this stage you will be able to connect to WICED_AWS from your laptop (Password=12345678) and then access the SoftAP config webpage at 192.168.0.1
