Blynk + ESP8266-01+SoftSerial example problems

Hi,
I have been experimenting with an ESP8266-01 and have uploaded the Shield_SoftSerial example sketch.
I get the following information from the serial monitor which suggests that my Arduino is connecting to my WiFi.

[19] Blynk v0.3.5-beta on Arduino Nano
[520] Connecting to VM610300-2G
[5670] IP: +CIFSR:STAIP,"105.71.85.69"
+CIFSR:STAMAC,"18:fe:34:dc:ff:10"

OK
[5805] Connected to WiFi

However, if I look at the devices connected in my router settings I don’t see this IP or MAC listed.

Also, if I start the Blynk App on my phone it says “Your Arduino Nano is not in the network”.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Did you try troubleshooting section in the docs?

Hi,
I have resolved this issue by uploading the bare minimum example in to the Arduino Nano and then using the following AT command to manually set the ESP8266 IP:

AT+CIPSTA=<IP>[,<gateway>,<netmask>]"

and using the gateway and netmask values on my network.

Although this resolved the connectivity issue, I tried to use the SimpleTimer library to get some feedback from my Nano’s output pins and the Arduino would constantly disconnect and reconnect to the network.
