buildtest

The buildtest sketch does a full test of core WiFi connectivity: It's a good idea to run this sketch when first setting up the module. It will let you know that everything is working correctly.

Before you run the sketch, edit it to replace the dummy SSID and password with your own:
#define WLAN_SSID       "yourNetwork"        // cannot be longer than 32 characters!
#define WLAN_PASS       "yourPassword"
If you're using WEP, the password should look like this:

const char WLAN_PASS[] = {0x1A, 0x2B, 0x3C, 0x4D, 0x5E, 0x00};

Since it's a collection of bytes not 'passphrase' style key
Also, make sure that the right wireless security scheme is selected (unsecured, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
// Security can be WLAN_SEC_UNSEC, WLAN_SEC_WEP, WLAN_SEC_WPA or WLAN_SEC_WPA2
#define WLAN_SECURITY   WLAN_SEC_WPA2
Here's a sample of the Serial Monitor output of buildtest. You should see something similar:
Hello, CC3000!

Closing the connection
Make sure you can see and recognize all of the access points around, connect to the access point, get a good connection with DHCP, can do a DNS lookup on www.adafruit.com and ping it successfully. If all this works, then your hardware is known good!
