ESP8266, Arduino Uno Wifi Shield

Hi, I am doing a project using the ESP 8266 as a Sheild with the Arduino Uno. I am following the Blynk Docs Tutorial to connect it. After Setting the Baud Rate to 9600 and connecting the TX and RX pins in the Serial Monitor I got.

As you can see I get that the ESP is connected but I don’t get Ready and the App still shows as not connected. What can I do? I am using a 3.3V Regulator so I don’t think it is a Power Supply Issue. The Only Questionable thing is that I am using a breadboard to connect everything.

Has anyone ever got this error or is it just me. I am also using the 1.5.4 Firmware for the ESP-01. I also tried the same ESP as Standalone and it worked. This is the code I am using. What should I try next?

  This example shows how to use ESP8266 Shield (with AT commands)
  to connect your project to Blynk.

    It's very tricky to get it working. Please read this article:

  Change WiFi ssid, pass, and Blynk auth token to run :)
  Feel free to apply it to any other example. It's simple!

/* Comment this out to disable prints and save space */
#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include <ESP8266_Lib.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleShieldEsp8266.h>

// You should get Auth Token in the Blynk App.
// Go to the Project Settings (nut icon).
char auth[] = "807ujcxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx3f01";

// Your WiFi credentials.
// Set password to "" for open networks.
char ssid[] = "Cxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxi";
char pass[] = "cxxxxxxxxxxxxxxi";

// Hardware Serial on Mega, Leonardo, Micro...
//#define EspSerial Serial1

// or Software Serial on Uno, Nano...
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial EspSerial(2, 3); // RX, TX

// Your ESP8266 baud rate:
#define ESP8266_BAUD 9600

ESP8266 wifi(&EspSerial);

void setup()
  // Debug console


  // Set ESP8266 baud rate

  Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass);

void loop()
