Hello everyone! Have any of you encountered wifi enhancement on esp32 using an antenna? I use ArtNet and get periodic freeze. Can someone use an ethernet shield with esp? Maybe better to use another board? I heard about the implementations on stm32! What can you say about this platform?
Thanks!

Hi, the ESP32 core is still in development so sometimes there are unexpected errors. Have you tried the latest version from GitHub? Also, are you getting any error messages over serial?

On the antenna question, I have some particularly ‘noisy’ leds which interfere with the ESP32 WiFi. I’ve found that this board

with the PCB antenna on this listing

solves my problem.

Don’t know if it’ll help yours. I should also point out the links are to my eBay shop, the items in question are available from other retailers :wink:

The STM32 is now a supported MCU, but there have been a number of people on here trying to solve issues, not sure how they got on.
