    Hey guys, I ordered an esp8266 wifi module online and the one I received has no pins on it with a bunch holes in place of pins. Did I order something wrong? If not, how do I use this IC? Do I solder pins in those holes? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Hello,

    No, you ordered the right part.
    You can mount pins on the module using header pins:

    The picture shows a long strip, that can be cut on the lenght of the module.
    This is only an example, there can many more be found.
    On the module side you can solder the pins to have the module ready to mount on an other PCB or breadboard.
