I have an ESP-12e and set it up like here with the exception that I am using FT232RL chip. The problem is I can't receive anything from the module despite the command I send. When I try to connect the
REST pin to ground for a second I get garbage on putty.
What I tried:
- Different baud rates.
RESTpin to ground for a second.
- Used CR after LF and vice-versa in Putty.
- Used ESPlorer software.
- Powering it from a standalone 3.3V line from an ATX power supply instead of using a 3.3 voltage regulator.
If I'm not mistaken I have seen that some are using capacitors with the 3.3V line going to the module (Which I am not using). Anything we can do before concluding the chip is broken? Because I haven't run it in a like a year.
