wl.isconnected() timeout possible?



  • Just came across a scenario i have never experienced. If i am trying to connect to a wifi ap and it never connects, how do i get it to continue the rest of the code?

    from network import WLAN
    import os
    import time
    import machine 
    import pycom
    # len([item for item in os.listdir() if fname==item])>0
    
    
    
    wl = WLAN(mode=WLAN.STA)
    
    wl.connect("xer", (WLAN.WPA2, "0996"), timeout=10000)
    print("_connect_wifi::Connected to with IP address:",wl.ifconfig())
    time.sleep(1) 
    while not wl.isconnected():     #it could lock here for ever!!!!
        machine.idle() # save power while waiting  
        time.sleep(5) 
        print("not connected to wifi yet..")
        
    pycom.heartbeat(True)
    print("_connect_wifi::Connected to with IP s:",wl.ifconfig())
