Seg 4: Hardware connection

2.3 Hardware debug

Generally speaking, a new wifi module is no problem in use. But for ensure to use, we can debug the new wifi hardware from the following.

  1. Hardware connection

    Fistly, wifi module is inserted into the Arduino shield board. Note that the insertion direction. A way for the judgment of direction is by the power. When power on, if the insertion direction is not right, then only one red LED light is lightened for the wifi module, and the remaining LED lights cannot be lightened (in fact, the remaining two LED lights is weakly shinning if you see them detailedly, since there exists interface around the two LED lights). Vice visa, if the insertion direction is right, then LED light is lightened and red at first. After a while, the other two LED lights can be lightened, where one LED light would be shining regularly.
