I've been trying to get my nodemcu working for months and tried countless online references but none worked. I'm using the Arduino IDE to upload sketches and always get the error "Timed out waiting for packer header"
Here's my setup. I'm trying to upload the example blink code for the nodemcu 1.0 12E.
My board does show up on device manager and here's proof.
I have tried pressing the reset and flash buttons while uploading in the desired sequence but that didn't work. I even went as far as reflashing the firmware through the nodemcu flasher but it's always stuck at waiting for MAC and STA address.
Please help me fix the problem and i'm sure not the only one facing this issue. Hoping for help :).
