ESP8266 -12 NOT beginner friendly

I brought this model because I wanted more GPIO’s and couldn’t find the 12a or 13 version. Man I wish I had ordered the -1 model first as this model is a pain in the ass to get working.
Using the provided wiring diagram and the arduino ide, I get the sync warnings and then the ide freezes during the upload stage (uploading stays in the progress bar!)

Have ordered a -1 model and will try playing with that before going back to the -12.

Well I’m on 8.10 and still got wifi isses ( constantly disconnecting) but I solved my speed issues.
By issueing pre-up iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M and restarting the networking my speed went form 24 to 54M, Now that one issue solved.

Kworld crap
—————
Well got a Kworld tv/monitor adapter used in twice and its stopped working ! upon exploring I found the PSU adapter has literally blown ! several components on it have blown apart !!
I’ve tryed to contact Kworld but had no response and like with the noontec jobbie I’ve lost the receipt.
Oh and Yahoo geocities are terminating there free and pay web hosting so its time to go shopping for a new host.
