Can't get default AP to be visible

  • Newbie here. I'm having trouble getting anywhere with my FiPy. I'm trying to get the AP to work just see that I understand some of the basics. I had installed the Hiveeyes platform, but decided I'm not ready for that yet. I have erased the memory and reloaded 1.20.0.rc13. The default AP doesn't appear. If I run the code below, no SSID is returned.

    Any ideas?

    import pycom
    from network import WLAN
    wlan = WLAN()
    print('Mode ', wlan.mode())
    print('Initializing LAN')
    print(' Mode after init() ', wlan.mode())
    print('The SSID: ', wlan.ssid())

  • Do you have wifi_on_boot enabled? See


  • I finally go it working by erasing again and updating the firmware to 1.20.1.r2. Not sure why it works now. I also noticed that it doesn't default to AP mode on boot. I had to program it to get it into AP mode
