When I connected the ESP32 module, I received error messages that seemed to indicate the module was not running the desired program. It should have been running a Wifi scanner, and according to the instructions, it should have printed a list of nearby networks, but I got a repeating message filled with diagnostic alerts.
Unusable serial feedback

The initial setback was discouraging because I had to install a bunch of hardware drivers, software drivers, and manipulate Arduino's Board Manager. I did not know what was wrong, and there were a bunch of steps where I could have gone wrong. I tried going through the steps on a Linux computer. One forum said that the error message could have been a voltage mismatch that was troubling some memory banks, so I added a battery to leverage a different voltage regulator. Nothing helped. I was using a Hornbill dev board, so I assumed my hardware was going to be reliable, but when I switched to a Chinese knockoff, I was able to run the example program.
Successful network scan
