I've been trying to connect the ESP8266 Wifi module to my Arduino Leonardo and program the wifi module from it (using Arduino IDE). However, I'm not able to get the connection established! I tried many tutorials but I simply may be missing out on something. In the schematics, I tried to respect the colors of the wires exiting out on the module.
In Arduino IDE I've installed "Generics ESP8266 Module" and set the port to the port connected to Arduino Leonardo. It says "[not connected]" after reseting the Leonardo, but then I select the Arduino Leonardo port again in Tools and it disappears. However, I get no response from writing the command "AT+RST" into the serial monitor, or any other AT command for that matter.
When I try to upload the Blink code, they are not connected (last image).
