Can not flash ESP32 - Wifi not working

I have been trying to use wifi to no avail, so I tried to re-flash the OS in the hopes that something was amiss, but it’s not working. I guess this is why the wifi isn’t working. Do I have a bad board?

Thanks,

Done!

Since I probably put this in the wrong area, I will just leave a note here for whoever finds this somehow in the future. I created an issue on the Meadow_Issues repository that will hopefully get official attention for a solution.

Just to keep everywhere I mentioned this up to date: I’ve initiated a support ticket and am supposed to receive a replacement board. More details are in the issue ^^
