Re: Arduino Mega + WiFly

 by follower ¦  Mon Feb 07, 2011 7:47 am ¦  Forum: Wireless/RF ¦  Topic: Arduino Mega + WiFly ¦  Replies: 1 ¦  Views: 996

I purchased the Arduino Mega 2560, WiFly shield, and Ardumoto. Note that the WiFly and Ardumoto appear not to be compatible as according to http://shieldlist.org/sparkfun/ardumoto the Ardumoto uses pins 11, 12 & 13 for functionality other than SPI. For now, I am simply looking to get some kind of t...

I do not have a sticker on my Shield. So how can I get it another way. Upload the 'SpiUartTerminal' sketch from the File > Examples > WiFly > tools menu. Open the serial monitor. Enter "$$$" as directed (without line endings). Enable line ending and type this followed by the enter/return key or sen...

to get to the libraries folder you need to right click on the arduino logo in your applications folder and select "show package contents" this will allow you to open that directory. from there go to CONTENT>RESOURCES>JAVA>LIBRARIES and drop them in there. Actually, that's the old way of doing this ...

Does anyone have an Arduino sketch which could send the NMEA information over either a TCP or Ethernet Shield? You would need a "proxy" sketch that reads the NMEA input from the hardware serial port (assuming that's how the GPS is connected) and writes it to a TCP connection. You could modify one o...

It looks like you're getting only partial responses to your commands. Maybe there is a flow control, buffering or ground issue?

So if I need to use the original pins I need to disconnect them right? I would have the voice shield and it needs 13 for ready status. But the ready pin might not be required. As far as I can tell you won't be able to use the VoiceBox shield with the WiFly and Arduino Mega without modification due ...

You just jumper the pins over. You need to make sure you don't use the original pins though.

Great work on this WiFly library so far. Thanks. Apologies for the delay in answering. My question(if it hasn't been answered already) is, how is the MAC Address handled. I know with the Ethernet class you have to provide one. Each WiFly module has a MAC address hardcoded--there's a sticker on the ...

Yes.
Have you an example sketch?
To get started I'd just use the WiFly_WebClient and WiFly_WebServer sketches I mentioned earlier. A "telnet" style approach would be simpler but I don't have an example sketch for that.
