DIY Mode - sonoff basic closes connection instantly

I recently got a BASIC R3 and I want to use it exclusively without the cloud.

The device creates the WLAN "ITEAD-xxxxx", I can connect to it with pwd "12345678" and also find the device with ip (my laptop get's as IP).

nmap shows port 80 open, I even can connect to it.

But as soon as I try a "telnet 80" I instantly get "connection closed by foreign host".

Entering the address in firefox keeps loading forever, of course...

So I'm never able to change the WLAN config for the device to enter my home-wifi..

Does anyone know, what could be the problem here?

thx and greetings


1 person has this problem

Update: I connected the switch to the ewelink app first, firmware was 3.3, so I updated to 3.6.

After that, everything works perfectly in DIY mode and the webserver is accessible.


i too search about it and i have the solution now.
