I am having the same problems as other people. Typing $$$ has no effect when using the terminal program. When I try a example sketch the green LED flashes fast and the yellow LED flashes slower (but i think it is still considered fast.) From the user guide the green means no IP and the yellow means...

I am getting a bit concerned. To enter / exit command mode takes over a second? If its running as a server or client, and you have to enter command mode to disconnect after every response and it takes over a second, thats not going to scale / function well at all. Having doubts about if this is righ...

Update I have successfully associated with a WiFi network (WPA) without modification to the library, it just worked. I have all examples pairing successfully. All examples in the alpha library work as designed. BUT I am still unsuccessful in getting the WiFly into Command Mode outside of source cod...

Wow, thanks for the fast response. As a seperate check I used zterm (Mac) to access the Arduino, but that did not work either. $$$ resulted in nothing coming back. On a completely seperate topic, I found another WiFLy terminal test harness, but it uses stdio.h, which is not in my library list, or ap...

I have the same issues as the previous poster. I have the WiFly Shield, plugged into the Arduino Uno. I am using the default Arduino development environment. I have tried to connect the WiFly using the Alpha Library WebClient, because the module does not support 64bit WEP, I am unable to associate t...
