Wi-Fi

Introduction

The WiFi libraries provide support for configuring and monitoring the ESP32 WiFi networking functionality. This includes configuration for:

  • Station mode (aka STA mode or WiFi client mode). ESP32 connects to an access point.
  • AP mode (aka Soft-AP mode or Access Point mode). Stations connect to the ESP32.
  • Combined AP-STA mode (ESP32 is concurrently an access point and a station connected to another access point).
  • Various security modes for the above (WPA, WPA2, WEP, etc.)
  • Scanning for access points (active & passive scanning).
  • Promiscuous mode monitoring of IEEE802.11 WiFi packets.

Application Examples

See wifi directory of ESP-IDF examples that contains the following applications:

Attention
2. Always use WIFI_INIT_CONFIG_DEFAULT macro to init the config to default values, this can guarantee all the fields got correct value when more fields are added into wifi_init_config_t in future release. If you want to set your owner initial values, overwrite the default values which are set by WIFI_INIT_CONFIG_DEFAULT, please be notified that the field ‘magic’ of wifi_init_config_t should always be WIFI_INIT_CONFIG_MAGIC!

WiFi transmiting power is divided to six levels in phy init data. Level0 represents highest transmiting power and level5 represents lowest transmiting power. Packets of different rates are transmitted in different powers according to the configuration in phy init data. This API only sets maximum WiFi transmiting power. If this API is called, the transmiting power of every packet will be less than or equal to the value set by this API. If this API is not called, the value of maximum transmitting power set in phy_init_data.bin or menuconfig (depend on whether to use phy init data in partition or not) will be used. Default value is level0. Values passed in power are mapped to transmit power levels as follows:
  • [78, 127]: level0

Return
  • ESP_OK: success
  • ESP_ERR_WIFI_IF: Invalid interface
  • ESP_ERR_INVALID_ARG: Invalid parameter
  • ESP_ERR_WIFI_NO_MEM: out of memory
Parameters
  • ifx: interface if the Wi-Fi mode is Station, the ifx should be WIFI_IF_STA. If the Wi-Fi mode is SoftAP, the ifx should be WIFI_IF_AP. If the Wi-Fi mode is Station+SoftAP, the ifx should be WIFI_IF_STA or WIFI_IF_AP. If the ifx is wrong, the API returns ESP_ERR_WIFI_IF.
  • buffer: raw ieee80211 buffer
  • len: the length of raw buffer, the len must be <= 1500 Bytes and >= 24 Bytes
  • en_sys_seq: indicate whether use the internal sequence number. If en_sys_seq is false, the sequence in raw buffer is unchanged, otherwise it will be overwritten by WiFi driver with the system sequence number. Generally, if esp_wifi_80211_tx is called before the Wi-Fi connection has been set up, both en_sys_seq==true and en_sys_seq==false are fine. However, if the API is called after the Wi-Fi connection has been set up, en_sys_seq must be true, otherwise ESP_ERR_WIFI_ARG is returned.
