This day started with waves of bad news. The modules I was working so hard on were difficult to identify, but a guide from the manufacturer showed that both of them were fakes. While this did not make them unusable, it made the markings on them untrustworthy.

The problem with the Tinysine module seemed to be a disconnected Tx pin. Every attempt to connect wirelessly to the module succeeded and it could send data reliably but it would not push data out its wired serial port.
Probably a malfunctioning pin or solder joint

An excellent bit of luck came from the module I soldered myself. I had the lowest hopes for this one, but it surprised me by displaying a HELP menu which detailed all of its commands. This was meant that all my searching and guessing as to which module I might be dealing with were over because I could refer to this list. The module said it was an HM-10, but that was probably false. Unfortunately, the help menu in this chip only applied to itself.

With the working HELP menu, a wireless connection was successful and a transparent network between two computers was a problem. Communication in both directions was established across the link.
