BCM4343W issue

I just received the subject AVNET board and upon power-up it is supposed to be in AP mode. However, no access point called WICED_AWS is present and the WLAN LED is not blinking. The power and JTAG LEDs are on and SW1 and SW2 don't seem to affect anything. Is there a driver for Windows 7 x64 to open a async session or something?

Re: BCM4343W issue


These kits ship with the AWS IoT Shadow application pre-programmed into flash memory but on some kits it is necessary to reflash this out-of-box application. To remedy this, a commandline batch program is provided. More info at:
