I just purchased an Adafruit Wifi Shield CC3300 and strapped it onto my Arduino Uno board.
I'm running this basic sketch that I found to test the functionality of the Wifi Shield: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoWiFiShield#toc1
Of course in my home I have Wifi, so I expected this sketch to show my Wifi name. However it doesn't. Instead I get this output on my serial monitor:
Init... ** Scan Networks ** Initializing Wifi... MAC: 0:0:0:0:0:0 Scanning available networks... ** Scan Networks ** number of available networks:0 Scanning available networks... ** Scan Networks ** number of available networks:0
It just keeps going forever detecting zero networks. I even took the Arduino and stood 3 feet away from my Wifi router. Still nothing. I even tried making my cell phone a Wifi hotspot and holding it right next to the Arduino. Still nothing. And why does it say the MAC Address 0:0:0:0:0:0?
Can anyone suggest a fix? FYI, here is a photo of what my setup looks like:
