Arduino core for ESP32 Wiki content

WiFi AP and STA active at the same time

When the ESP32 is activating it’s accesspoint and then tries to connect as a client to another WiFi AP, the connection can fail. Reported by user josmunpav in issue 653.

Possible solution is to set WiFi first into WIFI_MODE_APSTA mode first. Example initialization sequence:

WiFi.softAP(wifiName, wifiPassword);
WiFi.begin(connectoToWifiSSID, connectToWifiPassword);
