I'm following the Getting Started guide on starting the ESP8266. I get to the apart where I upload the firmware and check the Arduino serial monitor for the ip address. Instead of seeing what is in the example, I keep getting garbage in my serial output. I'll post a few examples of what comes up:
Strangely, if I run a simple test to output "Hello World" in the serial monitor, everything is fine. Any idea on how to fix or what is going on?
