  Serial.begin(9600);
// scan for existing networks:
Serial.println("Scanning available networks...");
scanNetworks();
// attempt to connect using WEP encryption:
Serial.println("Attempting to connect to open network...");
status = WiFi.begin(ssid);
Serial.print("SSID: ");
Serial.println(ssid);
}
void loop () {}
void scanNetworks() {
  // scan for nearby networks:
  Serial.println("** Scan Networks **");
  byte numSsid = WiFi.scanNetworks();
  // print the list of networks seen:
  Serial.print("SSID List:");
  Serial.println(numSsid);
  // print the network number and name for each network found:
  for (int thisNet = 0; thisNet<numSsid; thisNet++) {
    Serial.print(thisNet);
    Serial.print(") Network: ");
    Serial.println(WiFi.SSID(thisNet));
