Wifi kit 8 not connect to wifi if in breadboard

Hi All,

I have been playing with a wifi kit 8 (ESP8266EX) all works fine I am able to connect to my router and everything!

Until I connect it to a breadboard with no other component attached. I can not connect to my wifi
I get this in the serial console

state: 0 -> 2 (b0)
..state: 2 -> 0 (2)

I have found a workaround by putting a screwdriver on the bottom half of the wifi antenna.

I believe that something isn’t grounded properly.

I was just wondering if anyone would know how to resolve this?

Thanks in advance
