Example sketch does not compile, error message 'static void WiFiClass::init()' is private within this context IDE 1.8.13 Board Uno WiFi Dev Ed. I have been using this board for several years uploading to Thingspeak using UnoWiFiDevEd.h using Ciao. Now I am trying to use the UnoWiFiDevEdSerial1.h library but I can't even compile the example code below. Any suggestions?

/* WiFiLink example: WebClient https://github.com/jandrassy/arduino-library-wifilink */

#include <UnoWiFiDevEdSerial1.h> #include <WiFiLink.h>

char server[] = "arduino.cc"; boolean sendRequest = true;

WiFiClient client;

void setup() { Serial.begin(115200);

Serial1.begin(115200); Serial1.resetESP(); delay(3000); //wait while WiFiLink firmware connects to WiFi with Web Panel settings

WiFi.init(&Serial1); while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) { delay(10); } Serial.println("You're connected to the network"); printWifiStatus(); Serial.println(); }

void loop() { if (sendRequest) {

  • @Juraj ping - sounds like one for you... – Majenko Aug 9 '20 at 15:23
  • you have the Library Manager version of the WiFiLink library. it doesn't allow to specify a Serial interface and has SC converter library included. use the version from the GitHub repo you linked. did you change the firmware? – Juraj Aug 9 '20 at 15:24
  • it is documented here: github.com/jandrassy/… – Juraj Aug 9 '20 at 18:03
