Re: WiFly Shield code library alpha 1 release (also SPI UART)

I noticed the documentation for the V2.21 firmware of the WiFly indicates that the 1 second boundary before and after the $$$ has now been reduced to 250ms. Which version of the datasheet did you see that said 1 second? I've only ever send the 250ms specified. (Download the manual directly from the...

Now I have the real reason! The Serial.println caused a delay which made the code work. The real issue was I was reading the incoming data stream quicker than the buffer got filled up. Therefore filling my variable with the returned error that I did not handle. To be more specific: The web server co...

I think I identified the problem, well sort of. It's something to to with framing and printing to the Terminal, not that WiFly data. If I put a lot of Serial.println statements before printing out the serial buffer on a per character basis then the data is clean! This one caught me off guard as I tr...

Oops - noticed I created a new topic rather than post to the existing WiFly section. Will ask this to be moved or re-moved :oops:

If that is the case I assume it would be the WiFly firmware that has a problem as the AVR does not deal with the frames, it just receives a serial stream back.

Just a couple of comments that might help others I've also tried the Transparent Terminal sketch without much luck .. but the Alpha 1 driver set seems to work quite well! I used it with various Ethernet web server examples and it seem to work fine (in general). I did however find various $$$ exit co...

WiFly - Returned data stream

I'm using my board to run a small web server using the Alpha 1 driver. Generally it is working fine thanks to all the effort here. The only problem I still have is with the data being returned from the WiFly. Specifically, I'm trying to parse the HTTP requests for data from the browser. But the stre...
