Methods and properties described in this section are specific to ESP8266. They are not covered in Arduino WiFi library documentation. Before they are fully documented please refer to information below.
void onEvent (WiFiEventCb cb, WiFiEvent_t event=WIFI_EVENT_ANY) __attribute__((deprecated))
WiFiEventHandler onStationModeConnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeConnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeDisconnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeDisconnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeAuthModeChanged (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeAuthModeChanged &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeGotIP (std::function< void(const WiFiEventStationModeGotIP &)>) WiFiEventHandler onStationModeDHCPTimeout (std::function< void(void)>) WiFiEventHandler onSoftAPModeStationConnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventSoftAPModeStationConnected &)>) WiFiEventHandler onSoftAPModeStationDisconnected (std::function< void(const WiFiEventSoftAPModeStationDisconnected &)>)
It should be noted that when an WiFi interface goes down, all WiFiClients are stopped, and all WiFiServers stop serving. When the interface comes up, it is up to the user to reconnect the relevant WiFiClients and bring the WiFiServers back up. For the WiFi station interface, it is suggested to set a callback for onStationModeDisconnected() that shuts down the user app’s WiFiClients and WiFiServers (resource cleanup), and another callback for onStationModeGotIP() that brings them back up. For the SoftAP interface, when the interface is brought up, any servers should be brought up as well.
A detailed explanation of
WiFiEventHandler can be found in the section with examples :arrow_right: dedicated specifically to the Generic Class..
Alternatively, check the example sketch WiFiEvents.ino available inside examples folder of the ESP8266WiFi library.
ESP8266 is able to reconnect to the last used Wi-Fi network or establishes the same Access Point upon power up or reset.
By default, these settings are written to specific sectors of flash memory every time they are changed in
WiFi.begin(ssid, passphrase) or
WiFi.softAP(ssid, passphrase, channel), and when
WiFi.softAPdisconnect is invoked.
Frequently calling these functions could cause wear on the flash memory (see issue #1054).
WiFi.persistent(false) is called,
WiFi.softAPdisconnect only changes the current in-memory Wi-Fi settings, and does not affect the Wi-Fi settings stored in flash memory.
WiFi.mode(m): set mode to
WiFi.getMode(): return current Wi-Fi mode (one out of four modes above)
WiFi power management, DTIM¶
bool setSleepMode (WiFiSleepType_t type, int listenInterval=0)
Sleep mode type is
listenInterval appeared in esp8266-arduino core v2.5.0 using the last
V2 revision of nonos-sdk before V3)
Quoting nonos-sdk datasheet:
NONE: disable power saving
MODEM: TCP timer rate raised from 250ms to 3s
listenInterval is set to 1..10, in
station wakes up every (DTIM-interval *
listenInterval). This saves
power but station interface may miss broadcast data.
Otherwise (default value 0), station wakes up at every DTIM-interval (configured in the access-point).
A Delivery Traffic Indication Map (DTIM) is a kind of Traffic Indication Map (TIM) which informs the clients about the presence of buffered multicast/broadcast data on the access point. It is generated within the periodic beacon at a frequency specified by the DTIM Interval. Beacons are packets sent by an access point to synchronize a wireless network.
