Cant connect to the Kit

Hey Guys, A quick question. Would you be able to help me out with an issue I am facing with my structure board?

The first time, I connected and ran the sample workshop 1 program; it got stuck at "Connecting to Losant… ". I could see that, it was connected to Wifi and an IP was assigned as well.

Every-time I upload the code, I get this error message:

Sketch uses 281,170 bytes (26%) of program storage space. Maximum is 1,044,464 bytes.
Global variables use 38,337 bytes (46%) of dynamic memory, leaving 43,583 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 81,920 bytes.
Uploading 285328 bytes from to flash at 0x00000000
…warning: espcomm_send_command: didn’t receive command response
warning: espcomm_send_command(FLASH_DOWNLOAD_DATA) failed
warning: espcomm_send_command: didn’t receive command response
error: espcomm_upload_mem failed

Please help. Thanks!

So for some reason the compute can’t communicate with the board in order to flash the new firmware. This is usually caused by two reasons:

  1. The serial monitor is open, or something else is using the serial connection, that is preventing the Arduino IDE from using it to flash. Try closing the serial monitor if it’s open.
  2. I’ve also had success simply plugging the board into a different USB port.

The board itself is an Adafruit Feather. There are related issues on their forums that might have a solution for this as well:
