I think this topic should be a sticky. With the next batch kickstarter/indiegogo users coming I forsee a lot of can't connect/wifi/power topics, this can be a (help) topic for user facing power problems. When I received my Omega2+ I had the problem that after 20 seconds the led went out. I used the recommended lm1117, breadboard and wires as power supply. After some advice on this forum, i shortened the wires from 20cm to about 5 cm each and I added a 470uF 16v Capacitor. I finally saw the Wifi Acces point in windows so i: Connected to Omega-xxxx (default password 12345678) Went to and run the setup wizard. After setup, i did a browser refresh and immediately updated the firmware in the settings panel.
