Arduino to ESP8266 By Serial Communication

Following on from my last post, if you do not have a FTDI serial adaptor you can use an Arduino. Here is how to set up the Arduino to talk to the ESP8266. I an using a 5V Arduino Nano which of course is 5V. The Esp8266 is a 3.3v device and so I am using a voltage divider to bring the Arduinos 5V down to 3.3v. If you are using a 3.3v Arduino then you do not need the voltage divider.”
