 You’re only a few steps form getting ready: the development environment still needs to be set to work with your what’s next board. Go to **Tools -> Board** and choose red from the drop-down menu. Then go to **Tools -> Port** and choose the port number labelled with the red. If all is properly set up, you’ll see your board’s name and port in the lower right corner of the IDE. You’re only a few steps form getting ready: the development environment still needs to be set to work with your what’s next board.

 +====UPLOAD AN EXAMPLE====
 +
 +In order to guarantee that you always work with the latest firmware installed, check the firmware version with the CheckFirmwareVersion sketch first. You will find it in the Arduino IDE from the menu **File -> Examples -> WiFiConn -> CheckFirmwareVersion**. Open the example and then simply click the "​Upload"​ button on the IDE. If the upload is successful, the message "Done uploading"​ will appear in the status bar on the IDE. Wait a few seconds and the check the Serial Monitor in the right corner of the IDE Window. If a new version is available, follow the update procedure in the next step.

 +====UPDATE THE FIRMWARE====
 +
 +In order to update the Firmware of the red board, open the Arduino IDE and check for red platform updates in the board manager then go to **tools -> bootloader** and choose the ESP8266. Now select the right port on **tools -> port**, and finally click on **tools -> burn bootloader**.
 +
 +In this way, the firmware and the Web Panel files are uploaded to the ESP8266'​s flash memory. You can keep track of the process status from the progress window. During the whole procedure you'll see the TX and RX LEDs blink very quickly, meaning that the uploading is under way. Once finished, the ESP8266 is up to date.
 +
 +You can double check the successful outcome of the update procedure by uploading again the firmware version check sketch and read the actual installed version on the serial monitor.
 +
 +* Note: remember to close the serial monitor before starting the procedure.
