HeaterMeter Wifi Issues

I just got my Heatermeter in and I wanted to give it a try. I downloaded the newest firmware from the download website, I used Win32 to flash it like the video instructions said, I threw it in the heatermeter and when I check the website, I get nothing. The heatermeter is working, it will read the pit probe just fine. I downloaded a rasbpian image to check and everything works on that side. I was able to connect to the wifi there using the same password as normal. I'm kind of at a loss of what to try next. The only thing that might complicate it is that I'm using a google wifi system with 3 access points. If anyone has any ideas of what's going on, please let me know.

Edit: I also only get a red flashing light on the pi. When I had it hooked up to test the wifi in raspbian I got a green light as well. I'm assuming that's an indication that it's not all working as it should.

Edit 2: I tried to reset the values on the heatermeter and I think it defaulted back to thermometer when I have a K type so not I have like 400 degree readings. Apparently, the only way to change that is to access the web UI which I still can't, for the life of me, figure out how to do without Wifi. Can anyone please offer some advice on this?

Edit 3: I tried downloading the latest development snapshot instead of the latest stable release (V14) and that seems to have worked. I now have a green light on the pi and It is connected to the network. Not just to configure things back on the probe side, dial in the PID and get to cooking!

I also had this issue when setting up my headless unit using the latest V14 stable release.
When I checked the wifi credentials in the file they were not uncommented. Once I uncommented everything worked fine.

They will be commented out after they've been applied. If you go back and look again you should see they're commented out now.
