So I am trying to connect my DKWF121 to the GUI for the first time, but when I connect it to the computer the COM port does not populate in the "Available serial ports" box. I do know however that the board is actually connecting to the computer because it is visible as DKWF121 in the Control Panel, and I am using the USB port below the Ethernet port (not the native one). I found the forum thread about reflashing the firmware using the PICkit, and was able to run through that successfully (or so I believe), but still my problem persists
I am using board V1.3.1, and GUI 1.4.1-91
Which example have you uploaded on the DKWF121? In order to restore GUI communication, the default firmware in example folder "\wf121" should be uploaded, which has UART enabled for BGAPI.
