Solving AE-CLOUD1 Network Connectivity Problems

This is a followup to my article, 5 Helpful AE-CLOUD1 Setup Tips.

If you see three blinking LEDs, please check your log files on the board. Mount the board as a flash drive and look at network.log.


[WiFi] PMOD not present


This indicates that you either do not have the WiFi PMOD module inserted properly or the jumper is not set to 3v.





[WiFi] configuration parsing failed


Check your wifi.txt that should contain the SSID on line 1 and the password on line 2.

Other things to check

  • Make sure the security is WPA2 on your WiFi router
  • Verify that you are using 2.4GHz, not 5GHz

If this still does not solve your problem, please refer to my article on restoring the factory image on the AE-CLOUD1 board.

The AE-CLOUD1 kit is available for purchase on SeeedStudio
