Board version: Wemos D1 R2 (V2.1.0) Based on ESP8266
Hello Blynk community,
My Laptop does not detect my ESP anymore. I do not even find an option in the device manager. It is like my Laptop completely ignores the ESP. I tried serveral USB cabels and all different USB ports, but nothing helped.
I am sure that my ESP works because the Blynk App shows action. Also the light of the chip turns on everytime I connect it to the laptop. Furthermore I tried different chips which I know that they are working.
I’ve never had problems like this before. My laptop always detected the ESP8266s (serveral ones) very fast. It is like it came from out of nowhere.
A few days ago I cleaned up my Laptop to reduce working memory. Maybe I deleted something which had to do with the USB drivers for the ESP?
Therefore I downloaded and installed CP210x usb to uart bridge vcp drivers for windows 10, but that also didn’t work. Are this even the right drivers for my Wemos D1 R2?
I am not sure what to do anymore. Could you help me with this?
