How to determine wlan connected ESSID ?

Postby devnull » Mon Feb 27, 2017 7:09 am

I am trying to get the connected ssid, however this is failing:

Code: Select all

>>> from network import WLAN,STA_IF
>>> sta = WLAN(STA_IF)
>>> print(sta.config('essid'))
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
OSError: AP required


I don't understand the error AP required ?

Also, is it possible to get the dbm signal strength without doing a scan of all the networks ?
