I am using an Arduino board with an ESP8266 module to connect to a WiFi device. How do I check if the device is connected?

  • Which Arduino board? Check the associated stations on your router to see if the device is associated (connected) to your router Commented Jul 16, 2016 at 12:54

You can use:




to see if you're connected to wifi. (The first will tell you access point status, the second will tell you IP address.)

Firstly,If your ESP8266 module is coded then AT commands won't be responding directly, In that case You can check in Serial monitor(if u already wrote print in the existing code on module) else u have to flash a new code.

If didn't flash any code then use AT commands(AT+CWJAP?) for checking SSID. (AT+ CIPSTATUS) for IP adress.
