PyCom WiPy Unboxing

July 14, 2016

We are excited to offer the WiPy and Expansion Board from PyCom!  Today we will do an unboxing and show you how to get the board up and running.

Once the device is connected, search for a WiFi network called wipy-wlan.  Connect to this network using www.wipy.io as the password. Next, connect via Telnet to 192.168.1.1 using login "micro" and...
