Hi @rjvtech2, FYI the most recent (and currently supported) version of WildFire is v4, which uses an ESP8266 module rather than a CC3000 module (which Texas Instruments has discontinued). At any rate, if you're not seeing the Welcome message on the console there are only a handful of reasons possible.
- The demo program isn't loaded on the device for some reason.
- You haven't designated the correct COM port in your Serial Terminal (i.e. PuTTY).
- You haven't designated the correct baud rate in your Serial Terminal (i.e. PuTTY).
The docs for WildFire v3 can still be found here: http://shop.wickeddevice.com/resources/wildfire-v2v3/
For Arduino board support, I believe the most recent Boards Manager URL that I would recommend for v3 WildFire is to use http://update.wickeddevice.com/package_airqualityegg-2.0.8_index.json. That should give you WildFire options in the Boards menu.
Hope that helps!
