Level 2


I'm trying to create a VERY SIMPLE app, where a user executes the following steps:

  1. From mobile or pc the user search for the board AP, finds the WICED and connects to it
  2. Open a browser types and the browsers displays the wifi config page
  3. chooses a network, types credentials, submit
  4. the board connects to the network and saves the wifi profile.

So I tried to find documentation on how this whole Web Server, Wifi onboarding process work in WICED Studio WiFi and I couldn't find any detailed document with the explanation other than go to the examples.

I took the example snip/config_mode. ran it several times and all I get is this:

  1. The snip builds into the board
  2. from my laptop, I connect to the AP "WICED Config"
  3. Go to a browser and configure access to a wifi network.
  4. I get the IP ( in the UART, that I double check it is also the one assigned by the wifi router
  5. I switch to the IP provided.
  6. web page doesn't load, stays forever and I don't get any feedback in the UART.


Is there anything that I'm missing here?

Is there any DETAILED documentation on how the wifi onboarding works?:  Something that tells me how to capture errors if I type the wrong credentials, manage different network profiles, stored them,  Where are the files to configure the web server, html files (I know they are in resouces/../...). I need guidance on how all those things are wired together.

1. After connecting to the WICED Config soft AP, you need to go to the browser and type wiced.com or and the HTML page will load up (if the html doesn't load up then please try some other browser).

The HTML page with following details will load up.


Try changing one of the fields and save the settings. Click on Wi-Fi Setup and all the available APs will be scanned. Connect to your router (AP) by providing the password in the Wi-Fi setup itself, once connected you will be able to see the UART prints.

2. Regarding the documentation, we don't have any standard documentation, you have to understand the flow of code manually.

Thanks and Regards
