I'm following the Tutorial, (I am using Shadow example) and I've been able to "bake in" (hard code) my wifi details, but it does not take.
I have followed the directions exactly, and I have done some other tests such as changing string output and viewing this on serial terminal, to verify it is actually compiling and building my application. However it will not join my wifi, it doesn't even show any signs of trying. By way of comparison I entered incorrect wifi information through the web interface and it tried repeatedly to connect, this I could see from the terminal.
Interestingly, when I join WICED SSID and view the web page, it did prepopulate my "Thing" name as I had set it in the code. But the wifi details did not save, or the code did not attempt to connect.
