NetX_Duo Internal DHCP Server issue configuration ap - AKA the problem everybody is having with board not working out of box

majorninth's picture

When booting the board up the board hangs after the 5 second hold message and fails to post the configuration ap connect info.

In wiced_network.c under the NetX_Duo directory the code fails to exit the while loop below

else if ( config == WICED_USE_INTERNAL_DHCP_SERVER )


/* Create the DHCP Server. */

while ( IP_HANDLE(interface).nx_ip_driver_link_up == NX_FALSE ) // This case happens after p2p moves from group negotiation to starting the group owner

The out-of-box AWS Shadow App has some issues


- If the User button is pressed too soon, the module does not do it’s DCT erase and go into SofT AP mode


- The Soft AP mode can also be problematic, because by default it uses WiFi channel 1, regardless of how much competition/interference is already on that channel


An easy work-around is to simply hard-code your WiFi and AWS settings into the source code. 

Instructions on how to do this are in the Installation Tutorials

user button was not pressed (reset was).

Program is running on channel 11 which is completely empty except for the dev kit

Program hangs waiting for NetX_Duo driver to set link up status
