I’ve recently got back from creating an Imp driven installation in New York, similar to the one I did for Airbnb last year at Sundance, involving live printing of tweets. This time though I decided to use the Murata 005 board rather than the trusty 001. I tested everything before leaving for the states and it all worked great, connecting to the Wifi without a problem.
However, when I got on site at the Flatiron building none of the boards would connect to the Wifi that had been setup. I was assured the wifi wasn’t using WPS. I could could connect other devices to the wifi, just not the imps, even trying a different Wifi hotspot. In the end I had to create personal hotspots on my iPhone and have the imps connect to that which worked fine, though it meant leaving my phone on site for two days!
I bought the 005s from Digikey, which I believe were sent from the USA. Am I right in thinking that there could have been an issue with US wifi versus UK wifi? Never had this problem before, 001s always worked perfectly. Think I’ll be sticking to them in future!
Can anyone shed any light on what this would have been?
