Simple use of ESP 8266
I just want that a sketch in my JeeNode send and receive data to/ from WiFi. Did somebody make such a simple use of ESP8266?
Please help me a bit by telling how to connect and initialize the ESP, concerning speed, SSID and path word. More is not necessary, I think.

Is https://github.com/jeelabs/esp-link perhaps useful?

I found a solution, using
#include <ESP8266wifi.h>. I have made some progress, but encounter a new problem:
The following statement defines a wifi: ESP8266wifi wifi(Serial, Serial, 10); The first Serial is the input stream to the device, the second one the output stream from the device.
I want to connect the device to a port, but I do not succeed in defining Serial in an accepted way.
Can somebody help me?

As I got no help, I tried to use SoftwareSerial with the library WiFiEsp.h
But I don't get it working; probably because my ESP8266 is configured on 115200 Baud (which I cannot check!) and SoftwareSerial does not work correctly on 115200.
So I tried to use a UART as interface to the ESP8266.
In the example sketch ConnectWPA.ino there are two statements to change:
`SoftwareSerial Serial1(6, 7); // RX, TX
I have deleted those two lines and added:
'PortI2C i2cBus2 (2);
UartPlug WiFly (i2cBus2, 0x49);
Now i still have to refer to the stream of the UartPlug in:
How should I complete the code?
It was suggested to use jeelabs/esp-link, but without a step by step guide how to connect the ESP8266 and how to use esp-link, this is far too complicated for me
