Arduino UNO and ESP8266 Experiments

This is not an easy task, but it explains the basics for setting up a wireless network through Arduino.

Basically there are a two sites that when combined gives the right information:

The 3.3v seems to work fine and the module looks happy.

The output isn’t spot perfect so there might be some glitch to cover. Apparently the SoftSerial is a bit too fast for the UNO to handle. I removed an interrupt, a delay, and some code to push it a bit – and it got a lot better. It seems that pushing commands to the ESP-module is straight forward, but the output to console gets messed up from time to time. Unsure if a buffer would help. One blog suggests getting a logic-shifter from e.g. sparkfun to not burn the TX/TR.

Some early testing spitted out the following:
