Unable to Setup and Configure Bolt


#1

I am unable to setup and configure Bolt. Neither Method 1 nor Method 2 from Module 2 is working.

Method 1:
I installed the NetPlug App. Then switched on Bolt. The blue LED is blinking indicating it has started its own hotspot. Then I connected my tablet to the BOLTXXXXXXXX network and opened the NetPlug App. It scanned for devices and then starting showing my Bolt BOLTXXXXXXXX in the list. When I selected the BOLTXXXXXXXX icon, it did not show the Welcome page. Instead, it is showing a blank page.

Method 2:
I connected my laptop to the BOLTXXXXXXXX network and typed 192.168.4.2. in the address bar of Google Chrome browser. It did not show the Welcome page. Instead, it is downloading a file called ‘download’.

Overall, I am not able to configure the Bolt to connect to any Wifi network and so am unable to proceed with any projects.

Which Bolt version do you have? V1 with an SD card or V2 without an SD card?

If its V1 then follow the steps here: Bolt Setup Debugging WiFi Connection
