Hello everybody! Glad to be a part of the community!
So I just received my BrewPi Spark V3 last week and set in on getting everything all turned on and fired up. Fallowing the wiki tutorial, everything worked great with the Raspberry Pi part. However, when it came to getting the Spark on the wifi network, I hit several walls. I tried to use the Particle app on my Android (Note 4) phone but the app could never see the Spark. I also tried the CLI on my laptop and desktop, and they both would just hang on “attempting to configure wifi on COM13”. No matter what order I did each step I would either make things worse or hit the same conclusion. So finally after hours and hours of searching the net I found the link to the Particle site that is pretty much set up like the phone app. Particle Setup And even though at the end of the process it errored out saying I couldn’t “claim” the photon (which I have read the Spark is already claimed I guess) the Spark rebooted twice and the light finally went from blinking blue to green.
Now my fear is that since I hooked it up to my work network, I have going to have a hell of a time bringing it home and getting it set up on my home network. But we’ll see I guess. Hope this helps somebody else out.
