Photon does not connect post NBN upgrade

since changing to the nbn my particle photon no longer connects to the internet. I realise the wifi system has changed and have followed all the steps in the forum: https://community.particle.io/t/photon-blinking-green/14999/8

however the best I can get is a flashing blue/cyan LED

I think I have solved this issue after spending hours resetting configurations etc

It seemed to be simply the signal strength from the modem supplied by NBN. When I moved the photon closer, there was no problem connecting to the internet. Where I had the photon was about 15 m distant and with some walls in between that might weaken the signal.

Hi Peter,

I was halfway through my reply when you responded. I’m glad you worked it out!

Some WiFi routers have a strength/power setting, might be worth taking a look (I doubt you’d mind the power hungry modes if given the option)
