I’m setting up the new Bridges we just got in (thanks guys, they’re gorgeous!) and I’m having some trouble with the wi-fi setup. On looking around, I see a reference to fixing a bug related to this in this developer update, but no other info. Previously, we haven’t had any trouble with this (our other hardware works great).
The setup page for the wifi (in browser) has the password as a required field. Since there is no password set on our infrastructure, it seems (even with the MAC address already provisioned on our end) there’s no way to get it to connect properly.
As a workaround, I tried removing the requirement for the password field locally by just deleting the “required” tag in the HTML. I was able to submit the setup and see the response on the Bridge (it attempts to connect to the right network!). Unfortunately, the Bridge then just goes straight past the Wi-Fi connecting screen to a “Pairing…” that flashes every few seconds and doesn’t seem to get any further, even though I haven’t actually paired it yet. I’ve yet to leave it for more than a few minutes, doing that now though.
Any ideas? Resetting via the button on the bottom gets it back to the normal state just fine, so hopefully I haven’t broken anything yet. And, yes, before anyone says, I know I’m bad and probably shouldn’t be messing with the HTML.
